CANDELABRUM POETRY MAGAZINE (A5: 40pp: appears twice yearly, in April and October: ISSN 1470-8493) made its entrance onto the fringe poetry scene in April 1970, providing a much-needed platform for British poets working in traditionalist metrical and rhymed verse. Now (2002) into its eleventh volume, well established as Britain's longest standing traditionalist poetry magazine, attracting poets and poetry-lovers internationally, it has subscribers in Britain, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, 'whatever clime the sun's bright circle warms', where English is the mother-language or the principal language.
The editor specially welcomes metrical work, particularly with rhyme, but good quality free verse, and formal haiku and waka (tanka), are also considered.
Poems for consideration should be sent by post to:

enclose either a first-class British stamp, or IRC or US dollar bill, to
cover the cost of the call.
Single copies cost
£3, or US$6. Sterling cheques should be made payable to The Red Candle
Press. The RCP regrets that because of bank-charges it's unable to accept
dollar cheques, but is always happy to accept US dollar bills.
