"The Mays 23" by Varsity Publications

The 2015 collection of Oxford and Cambridge University students' work, with a twist. This time "segregation of poetry, prose and visual arts will be removed" (p.i). Readers are told that "as you move around inside these covers ... you will form a poetry of your own" (p.ii). I'd call much of the content on the earlier pages avant-garde - I didn't get/like it. The graphics/text mix was the easiest aspect of it to understand.

I liked Emma Levin's "Cheese-branding". "Our Body" and "All in the family" were ok too.
