Joining Whale Road Review staff and reading

I’m really excited to have joined the staff of San Diego based journal Whale Road Review. As a peer reviewer I’ll be helping select top-notch poems from the very strong submissions sent in for each edition.

The name comes from an old kenning for the ocean – the whale road – and evokes these unique creatures ‘moving in patterns through the waters of the world’.  Whale Road Review publishes poetry, flash fiction, reviews and micro essays. Please see the submission guidelines for more details.

The editor Katie Manning is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and wonderfully supportive of fellow writers.

I’m looking forward to working with the international staff, and to meeting them at a reading on Saturday Feb 6th. It’s at 7pm UK time (11am Pacific Time) and will be for up to an hour. It’s totally free to come along, but please pre-register here:
