We are very excited to launch our debut issue of The Red Pen on Monday the 4th of October at The Brunswick Hotel from 7.30PM.
A zine featuring fiction, poetry, and art, The Red Pen is a collaborative effort by a group of left wing activists engaged with radical ideas about society, and interested in exploring and expressing these through various creative mediums.
The first issue is the culmination of months and months of discussion, creating, workshopping, editing and tweaking and is jam-packed full of creativity work including short stories, short short stories, poetry, a novella excerpt, art and a music review.
Copies of the print edition will be available on the night with part of the profit going toward the Refugee Action Collective in Victoria and the rest to further editions.
Digital editions in PDF and EPUB will also be available free online so you can read it on your PC, Laptop, Mac, iPhone, iPad or eReader – or most other devices.
Editor, Benjamin Solah will MC the night with performances from spoken word artist Santo Cazatti, a blues and gospel band, as well as readings from Red Pen contributors.
Come have a drink with us and celebrate the launch of this new radical and creative project.
Entry is a gold coin donation to go toward the Refugee Action Collective Victoria.
The Brunswick Hotel is at 140 Sydney Rd, Brunswick VIC 3056
