A new lease of life

Having just accepted the post of Managing Editor of the Frogmore Press I have decided to revive this blog, not least because 2010 promises to be a very busy year for the Press:

- The Frogmore Papers will publish their 75th number in March.

- morphrog, the Press's new online journal will launch in July.

- Stewart Conn will spend the month of June adjudicating the 24th Frogmore Poetry Prize.

- October will see the launch of Poetry South East 2010, edited by Jeremy Page and Catherine Smith.

Stay tuned and keep on reading poetry.
