Arfur

For a tender year, Hedgehog published a literary magazine called ‘A Restricted View From Under The Hedge’ – or ‘ARFUR’ for short.

It contained some fantastic poetry from names both famous and new alongside all manner of articles and interviews.

It was a quarterly and only four issues were published before it was buried under an avalanche of submissions.

You can now download all of the four issues here for Free as PDFs or if you want a print copy they are still available on Amazon. Either way, we hope that you enjoy them.
