Strix is a new magazine based in Leeds, with stunning production values – it really is a thing of beauty. I was very heartened that a poem drafted only a few weeks before in the exceptionally inspiring Writers’ Centre Norwich workshop ‘Dream and Vision’ led by Sean O’Brien was picked up for Strix issue 2. I’m in awe of the cover design too – see if you can figure out the elements that make up the owl.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make the launch event in Leeds, and disappointed not to hear other wonderful writers included read, including James Giddings, Pam Thompson, Sarah Corbett and others.
If you’re looking for a fresh poetry journal for the New Year, or fancy putting it on your Christmas list, each issue is £5 and can be bought here – be quick though, they sell out!
