Candelabrum Vol. XII No. 6 - front cover    Candelabrum Poetry Magazine appeared 
  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. Once established as Britain's
  longest standing traditionalist poetry
  magazine, attracting poets and poetry-lovers
  internationally, it had 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.

After the October 2010 issue of the magazine, publication of Candelabrum was suspended indefinitely. Whenever resumption of publication is decided on, information will be sent out. All enquiries should be addressed to M. L. McCarthy, 77 Homegrove House, Grove Road North, Southsea, PO5 1HW, England.
