Rather than giving ourselves a big pat on the back, we thought we would let our readers tell you how good the Big Write Hook launch magazine is. So take a quick look at what they had to say if you need a little nudge before buying the first issue.

Big shout out to @BigWriteHook for my copy of the launch edition of their mag. Amazing quality, some quality articles & interviews and I believe this is just the start of something great from these guys. Congrats.

Shout out to @BigWriteHook for the copy and the t-shirt. I was privileged to; write for the first few e-mags and feature in the first printed edition. It’s been a bit of a journey for us both! Congrats on your progression guys, it’s been a pleasure.

Finished my dissertation and can enjoy myself again. That includes reading this. Honoured to be involved in such a great project, everyone’s hard work has paid off! Already seen some really good articles, and @BigWriteHook, @RyanTheDesigner have done an amazing job!
Matthew Pratt @handsomepratt
Ordered the magazine on the back of the asylum interview, great to hear someone helping grassroots boxing journalism.
Nice one! Enjoy the articles. The editor did a fantastic job in putting it all together.
Oliver McManus @OliverGMcManus
Was a very enjoyable read mate, I always like articles that are from unique angles.
Tim Hammersley @timhammersley27
So pleased for everyone involved with @BigWriteHook and it’s an honour to feature with two articles in the launch edition. This is a must read for boxing fans, lets hope there’s many more to come!
Respect the graft of the folk at @BigWriteHook putting in a lot of time chasing their goals. Magazines, articles, podcast appearances, shameless plugs when they can get them. Like their style. Make sure you’re following if you’re into your boxing.
James Wilkinson @Wilkinsing
Great to be in on the ground floor of something with so much potential! Loads of quality in the first edition supported by endless, fan created, content online. Going to get my head down to try and get something of mine in the 2nd edition. Keep up the good work.
Gloves Red @GlovesRed
Bought this out of a sense of solidarity with an independent writer taking risks and launching a magazine. Will continue to buy it because it’s just fuckin’ class! Well played @BigWriteHook

Never seen a boxing match (ever!), so my boxing knowledge is basically restricted to knowing that Anthony Joshua is a bit of a sort but I read every article in this. In one sitting. Every fucking word! If you follow their page, buy it. If you like boxing, buy it if you don’t like boxing, buy it. If you like design that looks original, buy it. If you get off on that weird new ink smell, buy it. Worth the £4.50. Gone a bit “amazon reviewer” here, but print media, esp a start up designed and written with as much passion and care as this, needs supporting. Well done @BigWriteHook, cracking start. Will be recommending and buying the next issue. Fuck it, might even watch the boxing when it’s on.

A day old and Aurla is already endorsing @BigWriteHook and her dad’s article. In all honesty this is a tremendous read and a fantastic effort from all involved. The guys behind this venture deserve huge credit for presenting a platform for all levels of writer #boxing
Gaz Waller @GazWaller
I’m not been biased but I’m about half way thru and am enjoying it think it explains and shows other sides of the boxing world other than money and analysis will be ordering issue two in the next few months.
To all my followers, if you have not yet purchased your copy of the first printed edition of @BigWriteHook what you waiting for! Amazing fresh content. articles written for fans. It takes new approach to our sport. Purchase from the link above! Even an article by me in there!
Gavan Casey @GavanCasey
Looks sharp, lads. Hope it flies for you. Boxing fans — give these guys a hand!
Red White Gooner @RedWhite_Gooner
Buy this mag. These guys have done so well in getting this up and running and is always full of great boxing insight. Certainly value for money!

Paul Nicholls @70s_mo
A sporting print magazine that you can actually touch – great stuff @BigWriteHook. One day if I am in the UK I’ll grab myself a copy. Shout out to @LWOSGarryWhite whose writing I enjoy. Good luck with the magazine. Cheers, Paul from Down under.
