Issue 14 has now gone to press with our usual publisher Newspaper Club! We will be launching on Thursday 13 May via Zoom, and are looking forward to welcoming contributors from around the world to read for us.
You can pre-order your copy here. We sold out almost before the launch for Issue 13.
To all our lovely readers, we’re very sorry to have to announce a small price rise from €5 to €6. We use the wonderful Newspaper Club in Scotland for our printing – nobody in Ireland will print the small quantities we require – and the price of delivery has gone up because of costs associated with Brexit.
We really hope you will continue to support us and enjoy Skylight 47. Issue 14 is in progress!
We had a fantastic Zoom launch of Issue 13 on Thursday, with over 100 participants at one point. Our readers were excellent, as were their poems. There was a thoughtful and interesting launch by Jane Robinson, and a beautiful reading of her work.
We’re very nearly sold out of copies, so thank you to all of those of you who have taken the trouble to support us. We can now have confidence in producing an Issue 14!
We would like to thank everyone who has bought copies of Issue 13 before the launch – we are so grateful for your support. As of yesterday, there were only 37 copies left!
When we first decided to publish a physical rather than virtual version of the newspaper, we thought we would have to reduce the number of copies. Because of our pre-sales, we were able to go ahead with the usual run. We should have known we could rely on you, our loyal readers!
The Zoom details for the launch at 6.30, Thursday 23 July are:
We have a great list of readers for the night from around the world – as well as Ireland, we have poets from India, The Netherlands, the UK, the USA and Norway. We’re really looking forward to seeing and hearing them on Zoom on Thursday at 6.30.
And we’re really looking forward to hearing the poems of our launcher Jane Robinson, who will be reading from her collection Journey to the Sleeping Whale along with other poems.
