MASTHEAD. Jo Lindsay Walton. CROW’S NEST. Samantha Walton.


(1) We don’t publish anything that often!

(2) If you familiarize yourself with the kind of work we prefer to publish, your soul will be in jeopardy all for the sake of these contemptible realities.

That time is better spent instead familiarizing yourself with trammels, blinkers, rap, depression, swimming, releasers, influence, whitebait, people on Twitter you wouldn’t normally follow, pedals, Easton, hard and fast Eden frenemy overflux retroverted luxuriance, neighbours, police, poetsplaining and editorsplaining (and Deoxyribosesplaining etc.).

We currently particularly welcome submissions from Mallory Ortberg, Elif Batuman, Steve Aylett, Tim Morris, M. John Harrison, Caitlín Doherty, Anne Laure Coxam, Eley Williams, Yoon Ha Lee, Connie Scozzaro, Sofia Samatar, Holly Pester, Sophie Robinson, and Lila Matsumoto again. We also particularly welcome collaborative work.

(3) We are open to submissions in March. Get in touch at josephclwalton@gmail.com. At other times of year you can try contacting sophiestamina@gmail.com but it’s more of a poetry submissions themed fairground ride than a process.

(4) If you’re interested in reviewing poetry for Hix Eros (co-published with Hi Zero), we’re usually looking for more reviewers, so do get in touch (hixeros@gmail.com).

This is all really dodgy and weird.

From Xena: Warrior Princess & The Seven Curses, by Francis Crick –

Xena soon saw Ketchivan for a sort of library, or that it stood to a library as beasts to their fossils.

Every taste was overcatered to; there was Dog Puke and Pig Pope, Pogue Duke and Dag Poke, Hick Moth and Thick Twat, Scrot (Sic) and Crotslick. There was Chambermaid and Chamberpot and Can We Have Our Balls Back. At every nook there was a queue of journals with a Pucktwat jostling a Fanfuck at its head, at every niche a mob of zines with a Drughock moshing a Flagclot at its heart, and at the threshold of each queue and each mob, a waiting room precariously stacked with more publications, Rapāx Gifs, Frot Gnat, Clit Gas, Pet Quits, Class (Sic), Jerkflick online it made her so sick sic? nope erratum in the last ish for sick read slick. Perpenned. Opunned. Atop a Gag some dog-eared Squid slipping, everywhere you looked you saw Pussy, The Pauper and Abject Permanence; there was Manger Exhaust, The Gloating Volunteer and Sayanora, Snorer!; there was Savage Will, Grasp Press, Jello Lead, Nova in Knickers, The Waif, The Wife, Whorf. There were the eschatological vers libre pulpits When Bird Flu Comes, Fancy Seizing The Means Of Production? and Confident – in a Maw!, there was the escatalogical fluxus rag Let’s Prepare for Sewage but also Reggae amid the Rubble. The neocrumb vianelle cheat sheet, Nothing To Lose But Your Shekels. Big Man On Campus, Little Man On Hippocampus. The sonnet-focused Armour.
