Over the last few months Claire Trévien and I have been busy behind the scenes putting together the inaugural issue of Verse Kraken: The Magazine of Hybrid Art, and today we are THRILLED to be launching it. The online version is up on the magazine website, and the offline version – a limited edition treasure box of poetry, art and other magic – will be available to buy at our launch party tonight (there are still advance tickets left if you’d like to come!).
I feel a bit like we’ve made something quite special. There are video poems, concrete poems, audio pieces, art, and a hypertext story-game – and that’s just to mention a few of the things in the issue. There was so much that surprised and delighted us in the submissions. I’m so excited to be sharing them with the world.
None of this would have been possible without the support and enthusiasm of our friends, generous Kickstarter backers, and brilliant contributors. Thank you.
