Our new editor in chief is Miikka Laihinen!

Nokturno's new editor in chief is a Finnish researcher and literary critic specialised in experimental contemporary poetry. Laihinen begins his term in January 2022.

Nihil Interit ry. has chosen a new editor in chief to Nokturno! Miikka Laihinen is a literary critic and a PhD specialised in experimental contemporary poetry. He will take the wheel after Virpi Vairinen’s six year term in January 2022. In an interview in Finnish (here) Laihinen told about his plans for Nokturno. Carefully curated content and a wide perspective to the field of contemporary experimental and digital poetry will continue to remain in focus but he does have few new ideas too: more journalistic content and creating more discussion about contemporary poetry, maybe in new forms. Laihinen emphasizes the importance of the editor in chief’s position both as a reader and as an enabler of new fascinating literature.

Nokturno’s soon to be former editor in chief and the whole team of the site welcome Miikka as our new editor in chief!
