End of an Era

Regretfully, all good things come to an end and Algebra of Owls is closing its doors. No more submissions will be accepted and the final batch of poems to be published will appear on the site throughout February 2018.

A huge thank you to all our contributors who have trusted us with their work and made the site what it is.

We wish you all well with your writing.


Paul, Hannah & Nick

  1. Oh, I’m sorry to hear this! Thank you for all the work that went into offering such a good venue. Best wishes to you as you set about your next endeavors.


  2. Hi Paul, Hannah and Nick,

    I’m sorry to hear this. I submitted some work a couple if weeks ago and I’m wondering if this has been included or not in your publications for February? I normally wouldn’t ask this, but given your announcement, I thought it fair to do so.

    Kind wishes Kevin Reid


  3. Very sad news! I’m studying creative writing with the Open University so I’m a fairly new writer. I have enjoyed so much reading the emails which come daily I think. I read all the poems to see what I can learn, and marvel at the skill of all the writers whose work you publish. What a wonderful job you all did running Algebra of Owls. Well done and good luck for your futures.


  4. What sad news to be waking up to. 😦
    AoO has been one of the most stimulating poetry resources out there – one I always looked forward to visiting. It’ll be missed!


  5. Oh no! I’ve so looked forward to all the poetry you’ve worked hard to publish. But thank you for all your sterling efforts, and very best wishes for all your future plans. Moira ☺


  6. Hi Paul, Hannah & Nick,

    I just wanted to say that I was sorry to hear that you are stopping Algebra of Owls. I has been a delight to read fresh, different and modern work. Thank you for your time and care with poetry.

    Best wishes,

    Stuart Pickford


  7. sorry to hear this. Have enjoyed reading such a wide range of work and thanks for publishing my poem. Wish you all success for the future. Marilyn


    • Right now, no. This editor needs a break to lick his wounds. It is possible we will return, if after I have re-charged the batteries I feel I have the vigour to give AoO the attention it needs.

  8. I also am sorry to hear of this. I just recently discovered you through my fanship of Alexis Rhone Fancher’s work, and have come to look forward to reading the work you publish. All the best to you all, and I hope to see you back.
