March Snakeskin is on its way

February 28, 2010

I’m not very consistent as an editor, and one of the things I keep changing my mind about is the size of issues. Should each issue be very small, a showcase for just a few jewels? Or should a magazine offer a huge and various spread, with poems of all sorts jostling side by side?

The March issue (which is nearly ready) is definitely of the latter sort. With Jessy’s excellent work issue taking the February slot, the Snakeskin inbox has been filling up for two months, and as an editor I’m spoilt for choice. So it’s a big issue, with eighteen poets (at the last count), and some terrific pieces.

The illustration, by the way, is a Red Snakeskin Discus Fish. I rather like him.
