The Tripping Spriggan is an anthology of altered state poetics that has been published in conjunction with Breaking Convention.

The wonderful contributions that have gone to make up this anthology of poetry, which is centred on altered states of experience and consciousness, is extraordinarily eclectic. There’s a strong thread of psychedelia, and a reoccurring, thematic concern with the world of Fey; self-transforming I’m told is the way. The Tripping Spriggan is a journey through transient states, as much about past experiences as it is about present poetics, and I hope you enjoy taking this journey with us.
