Hix Update

Hix #4 (Prynne Spesh) really is imminent. This one’s print: we’d be especially grateful if people with university libraries at their command were to order institutional copies.

Hix #5 is also pretty imminent — hopefully it will hit the Kindle on the weekend, with the usual free PDF following not long after.

And Hix Eros welcomes reviews of contemporary poetry for #6. If you’d be interested in reviewing something which you don’t yet own, it’s usually possible to arrange a review copy: hix me up.

(& I know some of you are waiting for the individual poems to review for the #6 special feature: they should be with you this weekend!)

Do you twail behind us on Twitter, BTW? @HIXEROS
