This month I am pleased to be joining the editorial board at Ashvamegh literary journal. Although I have previously edited poetry and fiction anthologies by my young writers in the various creative writing workshops I have held over the past three years, assisting with editing and selecting the poetry and fiction of other adult writers is a new experience for me, and I’m looking forward to being a part of the literary team.
Golden opportunity…miniature horse and rider painted by Leilanie Stewart. A writer needs a hobby (horse)!
It is also great to be working alongside fellow established poets, such as Munia Khan, and to have the chance to meet other international writers. The opportunity arose through a fellow professional poet, Ken W Simpson. Ken’s most recent poetry collection, Patterns of Perception, was published last month by Augur Press and is available from Amazon and through Waterstones.
Ashvamegh is currently reading submissions for its March issue. Check out the submissions page for more information.

About Leilanie Stewart
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
