Poetry Wales Editor Vacancy

Poetry Wales is seeking a new editor following the announcement that ZoĆ« Skoulding will retire after seven years in the role. If you have a vision for one of Britain’s leading poetry magazines – its content, delivery and marketing – Poetry Wales would like to hear from you. Your first issue will be an historic one – vol. 50 no. 1, due to be published in June 2014.

Founded in 1965, Poetry Wales is a quarterly magazine with an international reputation for excellent poems, features and reviews from Wales and beyond. Emerging from a rich bilingual culture, Poetry Wales explores the diverse perspectives of Welsh poetry in English and its international relationships.

Its interest in translation, and in local and national identities in a global context, are at the forefront of some of the most exciting developments in poetry today. The magazine is open to tradition and experiment, publishing poetry from a wide range of approaches. Against this background of dynamic contrast, it offers a lively and informed critical context for the best contemporary poetry.

Deadline for applications: Saturday 31st August 2013.
