Spotlight: Butcher's Dog Issue 4

Who've we got hare, then? Autumn 2014 saw issue four edited by Will Barrett from The Poetry School and BD co-founder Sophie D Baker. Sophie has valiantly and elegantly typeset our pages for the entire #DogDecade and so deserves a massive round of appaws! Issue four contains all these incredible poets, below.

The mixture of work we’ve come up with for this issue demonstrates some of the very best of that selection a wide range of lengths and style of poem, and of subject matter and voice. There are poems of great sadness and poems of joyful exuberance; of lust and longing, and of satisfied companionship. For such a small magazine, so much of life is here, and that’s all down to the fantastic work that these poets, and all the poets who submitted, are doing.
