About Smiths Knoll
Named after a North Sea lightship, the magazine was founded in 1991 by Roy Blackman and Michael Laskey. Since Roy’s death in 2002, it has been edited by Joanna Cutts and Michael Laskey. Perfect bound. Sixty pages. New poems, carefully proofed and presented – never more than one per page. Originally we published nothing but poetry, but more recently we’ve written the occasional appreciation of poems in each issue and now also commission short articles on aspects of craft.
We don’t commission poems – we choose from what arrives in the post. So we welcome all submissions, there’s no Smiths Knoll clique. Typically, twenty of the forty-six poets in our current issue 47 are appearing in the magazine for the first time.
We’re particularly valued by poets, not only for this openness, but also for our swift turn-around time – since 1991 we’ve been consistently responding to submissions within a fortnight. We like to edit – we’re well known for our willingness to ask questions and enter into dialogue with contributors about poems we’re attracted to, but feel might be improved. Here is an example of some correspondence and the finished poem as published in issue 47.
At least once a year we run a residential workshop weekend, exclusively for Smiths Knoll subscribers. This is a chance to spend a stimulating weekend writing, reading and discussing poems and taking part in group workshops and individual tutorials with like-minded people. We accept applications for these popular courses strictly on a first-come first-served basis and will be sending out the details of this year’s course to paid up subscribers with issue 46.
Single issue - UK £5, Overseas £6, and Institutions £6.50
Three issues - UK £14, Overseas £16, and Institutions £17
