The Cult of the Spiny Hog

“Tales From Prickly End” The Cult’s Own Magazine

The Cult of the Spiny Hog is something we feel is unique in the poetry world, a club that is both for Readers and Writers of poetry.

Run on a quarterly basis, we have a simple approach – whilst you are a member you will receive Everything We Publish, and be eligible to enter All of the Competitions we run – as many times as you like – for no extra payment at all.

To join costs £25 for a three month period, the cost of a lot of collection competitions when you look at other small presses, but we will usually have two or three competitions and many other books or pamphlets on offer to members during that time.

But it is also a lot more than that, as we have a constant selection of Challenges and even a few Commissions along the way.

To join the Cult and find out what is on offer for the current membership period, visit Here (UK) or There (Rest of the World.)
