And Other Poems is taking a break and will be back in 2017. Thank you to everyone who’s sent poems this year and thank you to Rishi Dastidar for being a wonderful co-editor. I post updates on the News page so it’s worth checking in from time to time. You can read all of the hundreds of poems at And Other Poems by exploring the archive or by clicking on Index. Thank you for reading poems.
I’m excited to announce that, during the next open submissions window (May 13 – May 15), And Other Poems is going to be co-edited by Rishi Dastidar a widely published poet whose debut collection Ticker Tape is forthcoming from Nine Arches Press in 2017. Rishi is a member of Malika’s Poetry Kitchen, a fellow of The Complete Works, a consulting editor at The Rialto and teaches regularly for The Poetry School (phew!). He will be reading your submissions along with Josephine.
And Other Poems is taking a short break and will be back in April.
There are over 400 poets featured at this site and you can find all the poems on the Index page.
Thanks and see you soon!
And Other Poems will be back on 17th November.
I’ll be at the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival (hope to see some of you there!) and then on retreat with the Aldeburgh Eight Advanced Seminar.
Thanks and best wishes
