Sentinel Literary Quarterly: July - September 2020
Published by SPM Publications. Editor: Nnorom Azuonye

Slq July -September 2020

The July - September 2020 print issue of Sentinel Literary Quarterly serves up a marvellous feast of prize-winning poetry. Here are well-crafted poems that please, surprise and shock as they explore the human realities of our time; our loves and our losses, our peace, our wars and festering social wounds inflicted by mankind on mankind and by enemies mysterious and invisible.

There are 78 poems and 2 short stories in this issue. Majority of the poems are prize winners, commendees, or specially mentioned work  in SLQ poetry competitions between November 2018 and April 2020. They are all available to read - at absolutely no cost - on the magazine's website. Dip in when it is convenient for you and read them online or get them all in one book to enrich your library. We are happy that you have that choice to enjoy the SLQ on or offline.
