As we’re in the final stages of putting together issue 15, our thoughts are beginning to turn to the launch, which is happening at The Albion Beatnik bookshop in Oxford on February 20th at 6pm.

The photo above summarises the reasons why we have our winter launches at The Albion Beatnik. It’s a wonderfully cozy place to be on a winter’s evening. But on top of the cake and wine and books and good company, you can expect some short readings of fiction and poetry from issue 15 contributors Claire Booker, Jude Cook, Stephen Durkan, Claire Dyer, Paula Hunter, Stephen Hargadon, Dan Micklethwaite and Barbara Renel.

All are welcome, and as ever the launch is free to attend. Well, we say free, but if you’re anything like us, you won’t leave without accidentally buying a book or two.
