Candelabrum Vol. XII No. 6 - front cover    Candelabrum Poetry Magazine appears
  twice yearly, in April and October. The
  magazine 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 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.

Submssions should be sent to the Editor with a self-addressed stamped envelope and British stamps or IRC(s) to cover return postage, if the author requires unwanted ts. to be returned. Or, the editor is willing to reply by e-mail, free of charge.

Between 3 and 6 poems should be submitted at one time. Poems should not be submitted by e-mail.

Copyright of poems published by Candelabrum remains with the individual authors.

NB The Red Candle Press does not consider multiple submissions.

Poems are accepted on condition that they be not offered to any British, US or Canadian magazine in the two years following publication in Candelabrum.

Poems for consideration should be sent by post to:
