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.

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.

Happy writing!
