STRIKE!

STRIKE! magazine is one of the more exciting new magazines in the country.

For sheer commitment, raw edge, and attitude, it stands out from the vast crowd. No surprises that since its launch in late 2012 it has gone from strength to strength, most recently upping the ante from seasonal to bi-monthly.

When everyone else on the left seems to be abandoning printed matter for the sake of ‘economy drive’, STRIKE! has gone against the grain and shown that a paid-for can flourish.

It combines philosophy, art, poetry, politics in a unique way but also foments ‘community’.
Contributors have included Nina Power, David Graeber, Heathcote Williams and Ralph Steadman.

Where there are so few…  erm… organs willing to look at political/radical/satirical/revolutionary poetry, STRIKE! won’t consider anything else. I’ve featured regularly in its pages with a modern adaption of Baudelaire’s ‘Abel and Cain’, a celebration of the Student Riots. a ‘strained elegy’ for Thatcher, as well as a Bourgeois Trilogy-in-progress.

The current edition features a new poem ‘THE BOURGEOIS (after Dostoyevsky in London)’ and is available in the ICA, Housmans, Foyles, Freedom, and online.
