‘An attractive flyer slipped out from the pages and grabbed my attention. It was about Slightly Foxed, a British quarterly literary magazine “for literary nonconformists.” I’m not sure I’ve ever experienced love at first sight, but this came close. I was hooked even before I made it to the Slightly Foxed website . . .
I’ve only just received my first issue, and my “to-read” list has already become much longer . . .
There is also the Slightly Foxed Podcast . . . each episode includes references to familiar territory for editors everywhere – from acquisitions to proofreading. With the occasional dog barking, door closing, and phone ringing in the background (not to mention the sounds of an elevator being installed next door), it feels like you’re right there in the office with your editorial colleagues and mentors, and a stack of lovely books and a big pot of strong tea on the table.’
