‘It’s always a red-letter day when the post includes Slightly Foxed.’ Penelope Lively
We’re celebrating blue skies and sunshine this morning as Spring seems to have finally arrived. There are crocuses sprouting in Hoxton Square, and yellow tulips brightening up our office. These spring catkins by Yvonne Skargon first appeared in Slightly Foxed Issue 29, where they adorned the contents page.
The relationship between language and the living world is celebrated in this exhibition of poetry and illustration. The Lost Words is a unique collaborative project between the award-winning author and Slightly Foxed contributor Robert Macfarlane, and acclaimed artist and author Jackie Morris, that seeks to reconnect people with the natural world. Subscribers to the Slightly Foxed newsletter can receive half-price admission to the exhibition on full-price and concession tickets. It runs until 6 May 2018.
Slightly Foxed is looking for a friendly, enthusiastic person to help in the Hoxton office on a part-time basis with packing orders, gift-wrapping books and subscriptions, stock management and general day-to-day administration of orders.
We need a lively, well-organized person who genuinely takes satisfaction in preparing and dispatching items, enjoys gift-wrapping, and is happy to hand-write cards and messages to be sent with items. Slightly Foxed prides itself on its personal, friendly and high-end service, which is something that our readers love so, in this role, you’ll be a very important part of the team.
