Adam Crothers, James Marriott and Eleanor Careless have done an absolutely sterling job since, publishing some really exciting new works. However, as their careers have progressed, they too have found themselves unable to put in as much time as they would like and have decided to step down. Thank you to Adam, James and Eleanor for flying the owl to new heights!
We have decided this time to let the owl take a well-earned retirement. The site will still be up so that people can consult it as an archive. It is also being digitally archived by the British Library and will feature in their curated poetry collection.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Daniel Eltringham, who was such an invaluable deputy editor that I begged him almost immediately to be co-editor with me instead. Scott Morris, who joined us a few years later also as deputy and then co-editor, extended the scope and quality of the fiction section in ways we could never have done–thank you. Eley Williams, who was there from the beginning until 2013, provided that touch of originality and helped us to get the momentum going that made The Literateur what it is today.
