Bolts of Silk

Bolts of Silk, the poetry journal I've edited for the past eight years, will close to submissions on 17 April 2014. The last poem will be posted the day swifts return to Edinburgh for the summer.

Thanks to all the poets and readers who've helped to make Bolts of Silk a lovely poetry journal to edit over the past eight years. I've enjoyed editing it, but it's just time to call it a day, now.

The site will stay up as an archive and there's a lot of wonderful poetry there, so I hope some of you will continue to stop by and browse in the future.

I love the idea of linking it to the day the swifts return for the summer.

All things have their time ....

Have you seen/been able to find "The 6th Extinction" yet? I have not. It will be good to hear your report when you can.

Great initiative. Will you be posting some of the entries at all?

Greetings from London.

Hi Cuban, follow the link in the post, there's a whole website I've been editing for the past 8 years!

Rabbits Guy, yes you're right, all things have their time, I've not found the 6th Extinction yet, must keep an eye out for that...
