We are now in the final stages of putting together issue six. It’s coming together nicely and will be dispatched to our friends at Newspaper Club for printing in the early part of next week. Your first chance to get hold of a copy (all being well) will be during the International Alternative Press Fair, which takes place in London on the weekend of the 28th/29th of May. Our brick-and-mortar stockists will receive the new issue on or around Monday the 30th.
You might have also noticed that the website had a bit of a facelift a week or so ago and, due to popular demand, one of the things we added was the ability to subscribe to the magazine. You can do this starting with issue five in the next week or two, or you can start with the new one come May 28th. Either way, it’ll save you money on the cover price, and the cost includes all postage and packing. We should have done it sooner, but hey, better late than never! Also, inspired by the wonderful Fire & Knives magazine we will gift a subscription to an Important Publishing Person for every ten subscriptions bought. Such a good idea.
Finally, alongside last-minute design (and sitting around waiting for the editor to write his editorial – ahem), we are planning our launch event. It’s happening at The Albion Beatnik on the evening of the 3rd of June, and will feature readings from some of our favourite authors and poets, including a number who have graced our very pages. There’s a Facebook event page with more details here.
Right, that’s it for now. Back to InDesign!
