Issue 5 Launch party at The Book Club - Wed 30 May!

  • To celebrate the launch of the fifth issue of inc. magazine – a poetry and illustration zine based in Hackney – we’re throwing another one of our Time Out and Guardian recommended poetical parties. Last time we packed out a sweaty basement at Railroad Cafe, in what can only be described as a poetry rave. This time it's going to be even bigger and better (though hopefully not as sweaty...)

    This issue is The Postcard Issue, featuring a collection of poems written from the most unlikely of places, by poets such as Hollie McNish, Raymond Antrobus, Angry Sam and many many more. Illustrations come courtesy of the fantastic Sister Arrow, Tom Edwards and Lorna Scobie as well as plenty of other talented artists.

    Get down at 7pm sharp to check out the live illustration and write your own postcard poem while DJ Vinyl Matt spins some tunes!

    £5 entry includes your very own copy of issue #5 fresh off the presh!

Spinning a Yarn

Our friends over at YARN festival are putting together a stonkingly good poetry and storytelling night, 'The Special Relationship' over at the erudite Book Club in Shoreditch on Tuesday 1st May.

YARN celebrates stories and storytelling in all its tangled glory. They've been up in Birmingham as part of FlatPack festival recently, recreating the whole of Citizen Kane through the medium of storytelling, music, illustration and (strangely enough) film. We can't wait to check out one of their London-based ventures. 

The Special Relationship is a regular monthly event bringing its audience fiction, non-fiction, comedy, music and illustration. Hosted by TOM BASDEN, regular readers, SAM TARADASH and JARRED McGINNIS, will be joined for some May mayhem by the almighty RICH FULCHER, the coconut's NIKESH SHUKLA and Mr tiny-plays, CRAIG TAYLOR.

The Book Club, 100 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH
Time: 7.30pm - 10.30pm
