“Rising star Alice Hill-Woods’ poetry in HOTHOUSE traces memories of teenage years spent in South Africa.” – ELLE
“Alice Hill-Woods’ luxurious HOTHOUSE is perhaps better understood as a sensory experience than as words on a page. Her work is transportive, buoying the reader on a gentle tide towards the stifling South African summertime, sexual awakenings, and seductive ecology.” – GUM
“Blending audiovisual description with a motional and textural poetics, [Alice’s] prose fragments document objects in transience, emotional residues, the intimate relation between the multidimensional works.” – MAP
“At SPAM, a print zine and pamphlet press based between Glasgow and Cambridge, Alice Hill-Woods close-reads a poem by Maia Elsner called "Transnational Zoo.” – Poetry Foundation (Harriet Books)
