A pocket-sized A6 zine, packed with over 40 illustrated pages that celebrate the best of new food poetry! Poems that make you think of feasting, indulging — think your Mum slaving over a cake in secret; a horde of hungry children; think family and friends coming together to mark a year gone by. Tables pushed together to seat another few. The garden party; the winter birthday. Overladen paper plates. Punch bowls. A chocolate fountain.
WHO ARE WE?
Potluck and SPOONFEED were both born in May 2020, completely independently of one another — call it fate or hunger. Like long-lost twins, we’ve discovered each other’s existence and teamed up to coedit a pocket issue to celebrate our shared first birthdays just past.
WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?
When you buy a copy, we'll be donating 65p from every sale to the Trussell Trust, the UK's biggest food bank organisation and a charity very close to both of our hearts. Forty percent of the sale — £2.60 — will also be put aside to pay our contributors for their work.
Pre-orders make a massive difference to us — it helps to tell us how many copies to order and covers the cost of getting the copies printed too. By buying your copy in advance, you'll be supporting our contributors and both our publications to keep on publishing new food writing.
WHEN WILL I GET MY COPY?
The issue launches on 24th October, and pre-orders should be sent to you around 21st October. If there are any delays, we'll be in touch ASAP.
The issue launches on 24th October — preorder your copy now and head over to Twitter and Instagram to join the celebrations on the big day!
