Iota magazine changed hands across the summer and is about to be relaunched with a bumper issue 83/84. Overall editor is Nigel McLoughlin, (his fourth collection is Dissonances which I mentioned here before).
Iota are also launching a major poetry competition with Tim Turnbull as judge
The details are as follows:
Closing date is 30th November 2009
1st Prize £2000
2nd Prize £1000
3rd Prize £500
+ ten supplementary prizes.
Now, doesn't that sound pretty cool? Go and visit Iota's new website, and for goodness sake take out a subscription: I reckon it'll be well worth it!
