Issue 7 of Sphinx magazine has just arrived and looks full of good stuff. It’s definitely one to subscribe to. It doesn’t contain many poems, but is packed with articles on poetry and publishing, reviews, interviews, cartoons. Its recent application for funding from the Scottish Arts Council was unsuccessful, which seems most unfair to me.
Issue 7 contains, amongst many other things, an interview with Frogmore Papers editor, Jeremy Page, a feature on ‘editorial pet hates’, and a review by Tia Ballantine of Jee Leong Koh’s chapbook, Payday Loans:
“Thankfully imperfect and patiently brilliant, this chapbook introduces a poet whose compassionate insightful voice deserves to be heard…[The poems are] generous, honest, and lively.”
Well done, Jee, and well deserved.
