A Special Message

The message below was just sent to the current authors of Archery Focus magazine:

Dear Archery Focus Authors, (And I do mean “dear.”)

The next issue of Archery Focus magazine is our 25th anniversary issue. It will also be our final issue. It is simply time to close publication.

The archives of Archery Focus are still tremendously valuable to archers and coaches and will still be available as back issues, article bundles, and a coffee table book of our lovely covers. Claudia and I will still be publishing books, so if you were in the middle of a book project, nothing has changed.

So, now that you know, I will mention that the author deadline for Issue 25-5, November-December 2021, is October 15th. If you submit something I will work it into that issue come Hell or high water. It will probably be the fattest issue we have ever produced!

Thank you for all you have done for our readers and be assured that your articles will continue to be available to help and inspire archers and coaches worldwide.

It has been a joy and an honor to work with you.

Your friend in archery,

What this means for this blog is I will probably be posting more frequently. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


PPS If you have an article you want published in the final issue, the particulars are as above.

  1. I will miss “Archery Focus Magazine”. I have enjoyed each issue and learned a ton from the periodical. Kudos to the various writers, Claudia and you Steve! I look forward to more blog posts here. I am still medically rehabbing my injured shoulder so I am laying low personally as far as archery and instructing/competing. Time will tell if I rejoin competitive ranks. Thank you for all you do!


    • Thanks for your kind comments! And I am officially soliciting a guest post from you describing your rehab. Archers seem to think rehabbing injuries is shameful and don’t share their experiences which leaves those of us who get injured sitting in the dark.

      Again, thanks for the kind comemnts.
