Words of Welcome

January 13, 2010

So here we go, then.

Snakeskin Poetry Magazine now has a blog, despite having chuntered along contentedly for nearly fifteen years without one.  But I’m trying for a re-vamp of the whole site, and I thought that this might be a useful addition.

What to expect? Notices of upcoming Snakeskin themes and projects, definitely, and news of other publications and poetry events. But also expect comments on poetic and cultural matters, and maybe even occasional outbursts of righteous indignation from Snakeskin’s editor.

The idea behind the blog is to introduce a bit more interactivity (someone told me recently that Snakeskin was very Web 1.0, and I don’t think it was a compliment). I hope readers will feel free to comment and argue (though when arguments get boring, the editor reserves the right to cut them off).

Let’s see what happens.
