The best thing about editing a journal, for me anyway, is seeing new poets and poetry before anyone else. Such as the very strong voice, out of Australia, Martin Christmas. Who, I discovered from another Australia poet, David Ades, also published in RRR. So, you can see how this goes. Editing is an amazing growth opportunity.

But, as all things, it comes to an end. This is my last edition of RRR to work on. I want to thank all the people who trusted me with their work. I’ve had the chance to work with fantastic poets from many countries. You will all be missed greatly.

Continue to submit to RRR and to write bravely and loud. We need our poets in the times to come.


All the best
