The City Fox are (finally) proud to present our first issue of creative works – Bones!
Inside you will find intriguing pieces of dark, flora and fauna inspired poetry and prose from Rab Ferguson, Miles Salter, Stephen Watt, Lesley Quayle, Stephen Toase, Fran Slater, William Doreski, Vicki Bartram, Tanya Nightingale, Anne Woodworth, Anthony Ward, Gary Robinson, Kathy Halliday & David Hartley. To download a copy in .PDF format, head here and here for ‘Click to Read’.
It has taken us longer than anticipated to construct Bones, but we hope you will all find it was well worth the wait. Each piece is individually illustrated by Nicola Spencer, whose work for The City Fox can now be found in the ‘Illustrations’ section.
We would like to thank all of our contributors for their patience, and for sending us some really exceptional pieces. We will re-open to submissions for our second issue, currently untitled, within the next few weeks.
A massive thank you goes out to our friend Ashley Fisher over at Turbulence Poetry, whose advice has been invaluable. And to J.T. Welsch, our Creative Writing lecturer, poet and friend from York St John University, whose guidance over the past year has not only seen us through our degrees, but has inspired us to launch The City Fox. Finally, thanks goes to Nicola Spencer, for collaborating with us to create something beautiful.
Until then, stay bright-eyed and bushy tailed!
Kathy, Vicki & Evie
