We published  2 A.M. Interlude   by Kanika Lawton in issue two of the  Horn & Ivory  zine, Zodiac. We loved it, how it was sharp & sweet all at once. How it held your hand, but pushed you down memory lane, something other than gently. We loved it so much that we had to ask her some questions.

After 15 days we're so glad to be releasing the second issue. Thank you to all our readers and contributors for making the inaugural issue a success. It was wonderful to be able to share  Baptismal with you. Now,  Zodiac  is here & we're bringing you stories of change. Our wonderful contributors for the issue have written about memory, about birth, about morphing. At our most fundamental level we are made of movement. We are always changing: we can't help it.

We'll be interviewing another of our contributors before we release our next issue, but you'll just have to wait to find out who. We really loved their poetry, though & we can't wait to hear what they have to say. In the meantime, you can read Issue II: Zodiac here .

Remember to check us (and our contributors) out on social media. We're on tumblr @hornandivoryzine and on twitter @horn_ivoryzine .

We hope to see you again for the next issue, there's something wonderful in the offing.

Caleb Lovelace wrote "Baptismal" for the inaugural issue of Horn & Ivory, titled "Baptisms: A Beginning". We loved his poem that soared & sang:  I am beginning to confuse you with the / taste of blood now  and we couldn't wait to ask him a few more questions about his poetry &  about him.

Out of the hard work of the  Horn & Ivory  team and our contributors, the first issue is now live! Thank you so much to everyone who submitted, we're thrilled to have you as a part of what we've been doing.

In case you didn't know, the zine has a tumblr that you can check out here , where we'll be posting updates & our favourite parts of the issue. We received some truly stunning work and we can't wait to share more of it with you over the coming weeks. We'll also be hosting a short interview with one of our contributors over the coming days, so stay tuned!

The first tendrils of the next issue are starting to take shape already. We don't know what it's called yet, but we're sure it'll let us know when it's ready.

In the meantime, you can read Issue I: Baptisms here .

Though from now on we'll only be choosing the names of our issues after all the pieces for the issue have been picked, we've gone straight in this time with Baptisms: A Beginning . Poems submitted don't have to be around this theme, but we wanted the title of our first issue to symbolise a new beginning, the first cautious step over the line, a pushing open of half of a gate to slide out onto the other side.

We've had some great poems come in already but we'd love to get more. It's shaping up to be a wonderful issue & we can't wait to share it with you.

love & best wishes
the horn & ivory team
