RAGGED LION JOURNAL

'I like everything about the Journal - the format, presentation, style, and the beautiful texts and poems and the ways in which these work together. There is a very special connectivity, ethos and taste which elevates this publication - it is rigorous and refreshing, both focused and adventurous in its scope.’

Ian MacFadyen, Writer, and William Burroughs Scholar.
