The Hedgehog Poetry Press began as an idea in October 2017, but didn’t truly launch until April 2018 with its first issue of the magazine ‘A Restricted View From Under The Hedge.’
Since then, we have launched our own Cult – The Cult of the Spiny Hog – which is surely a one of a kind, offering our members everything we publish alongside a range of competitions and writing challenges that hit them from every angle.
Our latest innovation is the forthcoming launch of Stickleback a new type of magazine that will be available for Free on-line at least a couple of times each month, both in anthology and micro collection form, but also as a pamphlet too, here and there.
We are also the home of the 100 Vapour Trails initiative that saw 100 EMPTY pamphlets get passed to poets as we asked them to handwrite a poem into the book, upload a photograph of the page and then hand the book on to another poet to do the same.
There is a web site, already full of some quite brilliant poems Here.
There will be plenty more to come too, we already have plans for a fine selection of Single Poet Collections including work from Raine Geoghegan, David Mark Williams, Sue Burge, Kristin Garth, Karen Dennison, Amy Alexander, Matt Duggan and Elisabeth Horan and after that, well, who knows.
