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 dymphny@gmail.com.

Thank you for sharing your work with me, and for reading the magnificent poetry here.

  3. Poetry will endure and our various skies will still (sometimes, anyway) be blue — but is unique. Thank you for what you have accepted and presented.

  8. Angela, it has been a pleasure working with you over the years. You and D. have been truly giving of the writing community in such an important way.

    A little sad but waving you on to your next project, I applaud your hard work & commitment to poetry & poets. Blue Skies was a warm venue to share words & inspiration. Working overseas, I always felt a bit like coming home as I scrolled through the month’s contributions. Merci, Angela.
    As blue skies expand to new horizons, I send my good wishes for joy & success.

  11. Congratulations to you Angela on your new position but man, oh, man I feel bad that you’re giving this up. I’m a total Luddite and couldn’t do justice to this website but there must be somebody else out there – hello!! – who can pick up from where you and Dymphny left off. Thank-you, both of your for your inspiration, dedication, friendship and vision.
