And so here it is, the thing we’ve been banging on about for the last couple of weeks, Structo issue nine. With all the subscriber, contributor, stockist and other copies now in the grubby mitts of Royal Mail, I thought it would be good to introduce you.

This issue features a record 21 poems (although admittedly seven of them are haiku) and 13 short stories. There are also two interviews. The first is with writer and theatre director Stella Duffy and covers everything from the best way to prepare for a reading to the difficulties of writing a Mills and Boone. The second is a fascinating conversation with the Librarian of the Bodleian in Oxford, Sarah Thomas. Issue nine also has an essay from regular columnist Keir Pratt which was originally supposed to be about finding the best café in London to write in, but in fact chronicles a quite serious/hilarious caffeine overdose.

It costs £5. As always, you can buy it on our website or from one of our stockists, but as of today you can also head over to the curated indie magazine site Anikibo and get yourself a copy there. Back issues will be up in due course.
