Editor’s Choice for Best Magazine, Saboteur Awards, 2017.

'In the ‘best magazine’ category, Butcher’s Dog distinguished itself as editorially crisp and varied. Beautifully produced, with an appealing immediacy that tended less towards polite chat, and more to presenting page after page of addictively good poetry'.

 -Karen Goodwin

'A new star publication
from the North...strong editorial vision, allied to excellent design.'
