We are pleased to announce that 150 copies of Issue 38 have now been printed and are ready to make their way into the eager hands of our readers. Huzzah! This issue features the talents of Chris Athorne, Laura R Becherer, Kirsty Dunlop, Martin Cathcart Froden, Emma Guinness, Vivien Jones, David Ross Linklater, Gillean McDougall, Kerrie McKinnel, Sean McLeod, Mairi Murphy, Victoria Shropshire, Maria Sledmere, Sarah Spence, Angie Spoto, and Peter McCune. Here’s a sneak peak of our beautiful cover, designed by Imogen Whiteley.
As this is the tenth anniversary of From Glasgow to Saturn, we will be holding two separate launch parties, one in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh. Both are free to attend and will feature around ten different performers. Copies will be on sale for 5 pounds each.
The Glasgow launch is from 6PM-8PM at DRAM on Thursday, April 20th. You can reserve a copy of Issue 38 in advance, to pick up at this launch, through our Eventbrite page. Stick around directly afterwards for the Glasgow University Magazine launch party at the same venue! It will be a fabulous and entertaining night of poetry and literature.
The Edinburgh launch is from 6PM-7PM on Tuesday, May 9th at the National Library of Scotland. You can reserve your (free) ticket here. Some of our performers will include Alan Bissett, Carly Brown, and Martin Cathcart Froden!
If you are unable to attend either of these events, fear not! After our second launch in May, we will continue selling any remaining copies through our Amazon ordering system. These will be available for domestic and international shipping.
Lastly we would like to thank Dr Vassiliki Kolocotroni and the English Department at the University of Glasgow for providing us with funding this year to put Issue 38 together and launch it at the National Library in Edinburgh and DRAM in Glasgow. Your generous donation has allowed us to print more hard copies than ever before, attract a wider audience, maintain our website, and donate back copies to the British Library.
And to our readers, thank you for all your support in making this issue possible! Your contribution has supported and encouraged the dozens of both new and already established writers and artists featured in this issue, as well as past issues.
Looking forward to celebrating with everyone next week,
