Editor's Note

Nnorom Azuonye


I had planned to write the editorial this quarter on the life and passing of Michael Jackson - the greatest entertainer the world has ever known or will ever know, a fine songwriter whose every physical movement was mesmerising and dumbfounding poetry. But I thought better of it. I am a Michael Jackson fan, but I don't know if you are. I will keep my comments to my blog, and the tribute site we are creating on the main sentinel site at


You will have noticed that we have now kicked off our Quarterly competition series to help fund this magazine and to keep it free-to-read. The first in the series judged by Andy Willoughby and Bob Beagrie has just been concluded and the top three poems "Coffee", "Enemy Funeral" and "The God of Allotments" have received their first publications in this issue of Sentinel Literary Quarterly. The competition was quite successful and we hope that it will get better and bigger, and we can also increase the prize money.


I hope that as usual, this magazine brings you a rich package. We are striving to improve and increase the content of the magazine and shall be adding drama content from next quarter.


Be well and God bless you.
