A note from the editor
Since early 2007, it has been my pleasure to edit blue skies poetry. I have been awed and inspired by the poetry that has appeared in my inbox over the years, and I have been privileged to share over 600 hundred of those poems with readers of this website. Out of this site grew another venture, the micro-publisher House of Blue Skies, which allowed Dymphny Dronyk and me to publish two anthologies of poetry by some of Alberta’s finest poets.
Now I have made the decision to stop accepting new submissions for blue skies poetry. Currently I am responsible for the creation of a new library in Fort Saskatchewan and must give this wonderful project my full attention.
While this website will remain live for the foreseeable future, to allow access to the archives, no new poems will be posted. I hope you will take this opportunity to look back at some earlier poems that you may have missed.
House of Blue Skies will continue its good work. If you have any questions, you can contact Dymphny Dronyk at email@example.com.
Thank you for sharing your work with me, and for reading the magnificent poetry here.
