Three years' editorship of New Coin

For the past three years I have edited New Coin, one of South Africa's oldest and most prestigious poetry journals. New Coin is published twice a year by the Institute for the Study of English in Africa (ISEA) at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. I have now handed over the reins to Dashen Naicker, who will edit the journal from 2017. All cover art for the issues under my editorship was by Lionel Murcott.

Glad to be unhappy
