Slightly foxed

If you are interested in Sea Fever you may well already know Slightly Foxed. It’s a quarterly literary magazine that introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Many of its contributors are household names, and they write with passion and charm about works that are sometimes masterpieces, often neglected, and always worth revisiting.

We were absolutely delighted to be able to persuade the founding editors of Slightly Foxed to give a talk at Sea Fever 1; their event was one of the festival highlights: SF at SF


As to the quarterly itself, if you are not already a subscriber, the magazine’s podcast series will give you a very good flavour of just what you’re missing - not to mention the well-formed personalities of the Slightly Foxed office dogs.
