About Equinox

Please note that Equinox closed in 2012 and is no longer accepting submissions.

'Equinox is surely the most beautiful of contemporary poetry
journals.' William Oxley

'Equinox is a bi-annual occurrence; a dependable immovable
feast of which each manifestation is entire of itself, being subject
to the exciting variables that twitch the seasons in art as in
nature. It is also a good read of the lasting sort.' Ann DrysdaleEquinox 14 cover

An A5 poetry journal illustrated in colour, Equinox publishes original poems — especially contemporary voices—on any subject and in any style.

I am a strong believer in Ezra Pound's dictum: 'The artist selects and presents the luminous detail. He does not comment'. I am interested in publishing poems which, as well as the above, employ contemporary imagery to make us see some aspect of life afresh.

In each issue Russi Dordi chooses three or four contributors' poems to illustrate in colour. As well as being published in the magazine, illustrations are also reproduced as prints and cards.

There is the challenge of responding to a famous/not so famous
poem or an original painting, and there is also a reviews section. Every issue contains details of contributors' latest publications.

Contributors have included Gillian Allnutt, U.A. Fanthorpe, W.N. Herbert, Ann Drysdale, John Whitworth, William Oxley, Myra Schneider, Mario Petrucci, Peter Sirr, Tony Curtis, Katherine Gallagher and others.
