Exercise Bowler 2010 - 2015

It is with a heavy heart that I regret to say that my poetry publication, Exercise Bowler, which ran from 2010 to 2015, is not permanently closed. No, not due to illness or anything like that. It was a wonderful, successful five years when I decided to take a hiatus from running the publication, playing editor as well as building the website from scratch. On the positive side, I will retain ownership of the domain name, and all poetry on the site will be archived indefinitely.

On the positive side, there is always the possibility that I will start a new online literary publication. I will say this much: I very much enjoyed the years I put into Exercise Bowler, I encourage those who have submitted in the past to visit the site and appreciate the work therein.

As always, an enormous thank you to everyone who made Exercise Bowler possible. I could not have done it without you! :)

  1. I thank you for keeping the archives online. I have visited a couple of times during the hiatus. And do hope that at some point you will be moved to start a new site. Many of the good sites are going down and that is sad. Take care and thanks again.
