I have to say, getting the first issue of ‘A Restricted View From Under The Hedge’ blinking and out into the light will be a bit of a relief. Like the Anthology competition it feels as though the phoney-war has gone on forever and I just want everybody to see what we have ended-up with – the selection for issue #1 is made and lots of emails will start flying on Monday.
It is quite a line-up, both in terms of the poems/poets included, and in the various articles and interviews.
I have said to a few people that my taste in poetry is a little eclectic, so it was always going to be something for everybody ahead of everything for somebody, well, unless you are me, clearly.
I’m aiming to publish a list of contributors next week. Not quite sure if that is the done thing or not, but certainly for the first issue I can see that people may need to know what they would be buying into if they take a punt on young Arfur.
However, if you are adventurous, you can always take a punt and pre-order HERE.
