Antiphon issue 24

Here it is!

Submissions to issue 24 now closed

10th January 2019: Please note that submissions to issue 24 have closed a day early as we have reached our Submittable submission limit. I’m afraid it’s a penalty of not charging you to submit; we’re not allowed an unlimited number.

We’re a victim of our own popularity. I’m not sure what the answer is to this; as a magazine run in our spare time, I’m reluctant to add handling financial transactions to the mix. We could pay contributors and charge for submissions, but I can see that doubling the workload. I’d rather we all had free access and concentrated on the poetry. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?
