The publishers of a monthly poetry magazine are celebrating after arriving at their 200th issue. Reach Poetry magazine is produced by Indigo Dreams. IDP publisher and editor of Reach, Ronnie Goodyer, said that over the years it had published around 9,000 poems and given out some £10,000 in prize money to poets. “It is a printed monthly magazine which contains letters and votes from the previous issue, so time constraints and deadlines are constant. But I have to say it is never anything other than a pleasure. Over 17 years it is where many poets have cut their teeth - several of whom have gone on to have their own collections and received awards.”

Indigo Dreams publishes two other magazines that include poetry, both quarterly -  The Dawntreader  and Sarasvati  - as well as anthologies, poetry collections and pamphlets. IDP's Ronnie Goodyer and Dawn Bauling won an award for helping new poets earlier this year.
