The Hydrazine was launched on Friday September 19th at the radical Hydra Bookshop in Bristol, as part of the Bristol Poetry Festival.
Paul Hawkins did the layout/artwork/printing/photocopying. The poems (from some of the poets who had read at a monthly spoken word night run by MJ Duggan at the Hydra) were cut up and laid out lo-fi style over a backdrop of stark b&w images, which were then photocopied and stapled together; it’s not a comfy, middle-class, ‘poetry festival’ publication.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all who submitted, came along and supported the Hydrazine.
