Apologies for the late arrival of the June issue. the editor's life has been rather full lately.

This one will be a double issue. The next Snakeskin will appear at the beginning of August.

Send your verse to editor@snakeskin.org.uk.


P.S. The slim pamphlet Animals Like Reading is still available to buy, and would make an excellent present for the intelligent child in your life.

Two blog posts may be of interest to potential contributors to Snakeskin .
The first, on "How Snakeskin Works", explains the simple procedure by which contributions are selected for a month's issue.

The second, called "Don't" offers some tips to novice poets, detailing a few of the things that might make an editor take against your work.
