At the International Alternative Press Fair last month a couple of rather dapper gents stopped by the Structo stall to have a chat. In the course of things one of the two produced a sheaf of type-written poems, a number of which, he said, were destined for the small press they were in the process of setting up. I told them to let me know when everything was up and running, and so here we are: the début of Peddlers Pozine.
According to the front matter, a pozine is “a periodical publication posing as a zine. containing poems, prose, illustrations and whatever we want. covering all subjects and areas of interest”. This proves to be the case, and it contains all that and more, with part one of a multi-part play rounding out this intriguing first issue.
I have no idea where you can get hold of a copy should you want one, as Peddlers Pozine Publishing are proudly not on-line, but will update if I find out.
Update 04/07: I am reliably informed that you can get your grubby mitts on a copy by sending a £3 postal order to: Peddlers Pozine Publishing, The Nags Head, 53 Kinnerton Street, Belgravia, London, SW1X 8ED.
A pub as their headquarters? Genius!
