Matchbox is a new Manchester-based poetry magazine. Each issue is devoted to one poet and contains some of their poems, and a free gift, in a matchbox. The first issue is by Togara Muzanenhamo whose new collection, The Spirit Brides, will be coming out this summer from Carcanet. The matchboxes are available now, in Manchester, in Blackwell's, the Cornerhouse, Herbivores Cafe, The Basement and via subscription through the Matchbox website. Future issues are to include Bill Griffiths, Ray DiPalma, Lisa Jarnot and Peter Inman.
