The latest edition (no.52/September 2009) of the Ligden Poetry Society's poetry journal Pulsar is the last printed edition, at least for a while, says editor David Pike.
From now on Pulsar will appear as a quarterly web-zine. The printed edition of Pulsar ran for 15 years and found its way into many corners of the globe: copies went to Mr P Chaudhuri at Poetry Today in Calcutta; to Marion Stocking, Beloit Poetry Journal, Lamoine, USA; to Peter Finch, The Academi Agency, Cardiff; and yet another to Neil Astley at Bloodaxe Books; a copy to Joe Woods at Poetry Ireland and so on. It must have cost a pretty penny in postage, not to mention the hours of work involved for editor David Pike and assistant Jill Pike.
And so 'from now on' I shall click on PULSAR in the Poet in Residence sidebar --->>> and enjoy the poetry I find there!
