A new editorial team will be taking over iota after #82 due out in June 2008. We have enjoyed editing iota for the last six years and are pleased to be handing it over to such an able team. Hopefully, the transition will be seamless. We will be selecting poems until the next edition is filled and will then pass all submissions to the new team. They will be selecting poems anonymously so from now on please do not include your name on the same sheet as your work. The new submission guidelines are at http://www.iotapoetry.co.uk/submissions.htm. We would like to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged us in our editorship of iota — we couldn't have done it without you.The journal will now be edited by a team of poets from the University of Gloucestershire led by Nigel McLoughlin. The new editorial board will be made up as follows:
- Nigel McLoughlin (Editor): author of four poetry collections, the latest of which is Dissonances (bluechrome, 2007).
- Kate North (Reviews Editor): is a poet and novelist whose poems have twice been short-listed for a Forward Prize.
- Angela France (Listings & Features Editor): editor of the on-line journal The Shit Creek Review.
- Sonia Hendy-Isaac (Performance & Articles Editor): about to start her PhD in Poetry at the University of Gloucestershire.
