Hotdog is a poetry magazine.
Hotdog aims to challenge the gender discrepancy in literature, art and publishing by publishing the work by all womxn. We don't accept the generalisation that poetry is 'unapproachable'. Our contributors push the boundaries, bringing truth, pain and laughter to the page.
Hotdog blurs the space between creativity and consumption, asking readers to rethink how they view contemporary literature. We refuse to abide by the hierarchical systems of 'high brow / low brow' culture.

'Poetry-focused Hotdog Magazine is carving a niche for itself with the use of terminally uncool features like Minion Pro, gradients, and QR codes.'
AIGA Eye on Design
'Hotdog is everything you don’t expect a poetry magazine to be: funny, loud and unassuming.'
'The chaotic design of the magazine adds to the magazine’s unpretentiousness, making it feel like a scrapbook of words and ideas instead of a heavily curated, dense publication. Hotdog is never over-thought, allowing its commitment to the artists to really come through.'
'If the word “poetry” feels stodgy and unapproachable, Hotdog might be the magazine for you. Despite its phallic name, this U.K.-based poetry magazine—which also features fiction and interviews—is actually dedicated to women and individuals identifying as non-binary. The art direction is a hodgepodgey collage of graphics and experimental type treatments.'
'Hotdog is all about femme poetry with great graphics.'
