We are very sorry if you have experienced a delay in the publication of your poem or story, or have not had a response to your submission.  This is due to the effect on us of the virus, not only physical but also emotional, and Time, which has had to be spent differently. We will return to normal as soon as we can, and apologise to writers who have submitted work. If you wish to withdraw your submission, we would be sorry, but understand and very grateful if you would let us know.
