Hello, Friends — As we get ready to publish our winter issue of Sheila-Na-Gig online, we reflect on the amazing journey we’ve had thus far. When deciding to have a go at online publishing in 2016, I had no idea what a pleasure the venture would become, no idea of the old poetry connections I would rekindle, the wonderful poets we would meet, and the amazing new friends we would make along the way.
With this 17th issue of Sheila-Na-Gig online (three of which, solely because of the efforts of Associate Editor Jessica Higgins, supported the work of poets under age thirty) we will have published over 300 poets and awarded (with the help of your reading fees, of course) $3,400 in prizes through our quarterly poetry contests and poetry manuscript contest. And who knew that we would end up publishing books! Sheila-Na-Gig Editions has published three amazing titles to date and will offer three additional collections in the coming year.
None of this could be possible without our readers and the amazing writers that continue to send us their work.
For that, we thank you!
Many best wishes for the upcoming holidays and best wishes for all your creative endeavors in the new year!
Hayley & Jessica
