A Restricted View From Under the Hedge

‘A Restricted View From Under the Hedge,’ or ‘Arfur’ if like me you can’t be bothered to type such a long name, launched for the first time in March 2018 containing a selection of poetry we are proud of and all manner of interviews and reviews that we couldn’t quite believe our luck to arrange.

If you wish to submit up to Five Poems for consideration for our magazine, please simply email them to poetry@hedgehogpress.co.uk.

We prefer to receive them in RTF, DOC, DOCX or TXT format if possible.

We will accept submissions at any time on the basis that work that is accepted will be placed in the next available magazine. However, we are flexible if there is a good reason.

Review Policy:

If you have a collection or anthology of poetry that you would like us to consider for review in ‘Arfur’ please email in the first instance  to poetry@hedgehogpress.co.uk.

Please note we only now review Printed Copies of Books and Pamphlets. We don’t distinguish between traditionally or self-published work.
