April (No fooling)

April 1, 2017

The Short Poems issue went online today.

This one has been fun to edit, though it’s been a lot of work. Snakeskin’s readership has grown recently, and so have the number of submissions. Choosing is getting difficult.

I’ve always liked to include a wild card or two in an edition of Snakeskin. An unpolished poem with a bit of punch, a poem by a newcomer whose voice is distinctive even though not quite formed yet. this gets difficult when I have  a mass of accomplished poems to choose between.

If your short poems  weren’t selected for this month’s issue, please don’t feel grim and sad about it. You’re in good company. Plenty of poems that in other years might have made the cut had to be set aside this time. Don’t be discouraged. Send some more, and maybe they’ll be just what we need next time.

    Hi, I notice that the archives only go up to issue 235, and the homepage only goes back to issue 240. Is this a normal gap that will be filled in as more issues come out?
