Envoi #145 sees Roger Elkin stand down as editor after 14 years.
The new editor is Jan Fortune-Wood who is one of the people behind Cinnamon Press.
I remember Envoi from its early days when run by J C Meredith Scott. He was always sending me postage stamps as a small favour for recommending people who submitted or subscribed. I've still got some of my own early submissions with notes attached from his editorial panel saying why such and such a poem should or should not be considered for publication. Some were cryptically puzzling while others were spot-on pieces of constructive criticism.
I don't remember the two editors who took over briefly after the founder-editor's death, but I already knew Anne Lewis-Smith who was editor from 1984-91. She was a contributor to the first issue of my own magazine, Headland.
Envoi will be fify years old in 2007, and I'm sure the new editor will do a splendid job of nurturing it into its second half-century.
