Issue 5: update
We want to explain, and apologise for, the silence at The Compass over the last few months. The magazine is currently an entirely voluntary endeavour and both editors have been unusually busy with various significant commitments. We are putting in place a solid system to ensure that a delay like this doesn’t recur and that The Compass expands in the ways we’ve always envisaged. We’re aware that the magazine is very well loved (thank you for all your emails about it) and want to reassure our readers that it is still very much an active publication. The next issue will appear in June/July and we have reopened submissions for it, closing on April 30th.
If we have your poems for consideration, we’re sorry for the long wait for a response. We will assume you are still happy for us to consider them unless we hear otherwise.
We will be in touch very soon.
Andrew Forster & Lindsey Holland
