Apollo 11

The Issue 2 submission period closed on June 22nd and since then, the editorial team have gone through hundreds of submissions. Our mystery artist LK-97 has been sending us artwork for the Issue and we are always trying to work out who this is.

The mystery continues...

Over 90 poets will eb published in Issue 2 and approximately 170 poems. This is a huge undertaking over a few weeks but we think we can do it. Apollo 11 day is 20th July - the 50th anniversary. This Issue is also dedicated to Helen Sharman, the first Briton in space.

Keep up to date on Twitter @blackboughpoems. There are approx 1,200 followers and a very active network of poets, the Black Bough community. Not long to ago before Issue 2 is out.
