Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
I haven’t reviewed all that many poetry zines on here — it can be difficult to parcel together a neat little write-up when the content is so varied. Poetry anthologies spill over with different personalities. Turbulence is a good read though, and worth seeking out. Based in Hull, the magazine features an impressive number of contributors from more countries than you’ve had hot dinners. A couple that caught my eye were Andrew Pidoux’s ‘The Charity Shop At Night’ and also a mournful ode by Michael O’Brien, lost in regret over a vegan macaroni and cheese he just ate, when he could have been feasting on sushi instead. In the time it has taken me to fully absorb and digest this issue, however, a new one has sprung up in its place. Visit their site to order a copy, or to submit your own work.
