South magazine to end publication after 35 years

entry picture

A poetry magazine that began in 1990 is ending publication this year. South magazine, which selects poems anonymously, with different selectors for each issue, said: “After 35 years of continuous production, it is with a mixture of sadness and pride that South’s management team has decided South 70 must be the final edition of South.

“Postal and printing costs continue to rise and subscriber numbers have fallen steadily over recent years, meaning that we just cannot keep going.

“We are planning a bumper final issue, so please polish up your best poems, and send them in by May 31st, to make it a real poetic celebration. If you are a subscriber who has paid up for issues beyond South 70, we will be returning your advance payment in due course.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported us through the years: subscribers, submitters, selectors, profilers and reviewers. It's been great working with you all.”
