Reliquiś is an annual journal of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, translations and visual art, edited by Autumn Richardson & Richard Skelton. Each issue collects together both old and new work from a diverse range of writers and artists with common interests spanning landscape, ecology, folklore, esoteric philosophy and animism.

New work:

Heidi Bailey two poems on life and death in foxes, and in the intertidal zone. Don Domanski a visionary poem on the 'divine presence' of rain and the world of 'soft light and slow sleep'. Rowan Evans excerpts from Wulf, an adaptation of the enigmatic Anglo-Saxon poem, Wulf and Eadwacer. Mark Goodwin two poems on mountains, ice, and the voices of slate. Whit Griffin an excerpt from the ongoing mytho-historical poem, The Universal Lyre J.D. Howse a mythopoeic exploration of the landscape around Chernobyl and its nuclear legacy. Steffi Lang three poems on the 'the apparations of our knowing', the 'petal light of winter-end', and the 'cosmic hum of absence'. Karen Lloyd two poems on the strange cargo of rivers, and the oxe-eye daisy - 'the sensor of the planet's hum'. Autumn Richardson a wilderness encounter with the other-than-human. Penelope Shuttle two seasonal vignettes from Kernow, Cornwall. ZoŽ Skoulding an excerpt from an ongoing sequence based on the calendar of ten-day weeks devised by Gilbert Romme and Fabre d'…glantine during the French Revolution. John Steffler poetry and prose on snow, the sustained gaze, and the life 'underneath'. Nathaniel Tarn an elegiac hymn to birth, death, and everlasting change.
