"Salt has launched Horizon Review, its second online literary magazine and part of its planned expansion into free-to-view Web journals. Novelist and poet Jane Holland takes the helm of the magazine for the next three years. Holland is currently Warwick's Poet Laureate.
Featuring a new regular column from Daily Telegraph blogger Peter Robins, as well as new fiction from Elizabeth Baines and poetry from T.S. Eliot award-winning poet George Szirtes. The first issue is diverse, feature rich and contains an interview with award-winning fantasy writer China Miéville, alongside reviews of art and a translation of a newly discovered fifth branch of the Mabinogion, the Amaethon Uab Dôr.
"We're delighted with this first issue, Jane is a gifted editor who is firmly focused on building online readerships. This edition of Horizon provides solid content for our online audience and is a significant step forward in the development of our online offering – and a key part of our publishing strategy," says Chris Hamilton-Emery.
"The magazine had over 5,000 page views in its first 48 hours and we intend to build on this in coming months. We're getting around 14 million hits a year to the Salt Web site now; about 80,000 visits a month."
