Abstract

An interview with the editors of Zoomorphic Magazine, Susan Richardson and James Robertson after the launch of Issue 1. They were both enthused by the reaction people had toward their venture, and keen to see it grow and shape the writing landscape for animals in Britain, and across the world. I have followed Zoomorphic since through a number of issues, having published over 150 writers, with its first print anthology, Driftfish, focusing on marine life, having come out in December 2016. The sense of a community of practice able to write, read and share in the craft of writing about animals in more animal- and less anthropo- centric ways has been critical to the way in which the project has developed since its inception.
