Managing Editor: Jo Clement

A working-class poet raised on a North East council estate, Jo Clement is a New Writing North award-winner. Friends call her Clem. Her poems have been shortlisted for the Bridport, Melita Hume and Troubadour International prizes.   Jo’s Ph.D. thesis ‘Moveable Type’ explores her Gypsy ethnicity through the visual art of eighteenth-century wood engraver Thomas Bewick. The practice-led study produced a new collection of poems and was awarded an inaugural AHRC Northern Bridge scholarship.

Typesetter: Sophie F Baker

Sophie F Baker is a poet of some sort and one of the founding editors of Butcher's Dog. She loves a Collegiate Shag and can occasionally be found teaching others how to partake - as well as working as a magazine editor for her local Wildlife Trust.
