Page 19 Released



After a short Easter-Egg related delay, Page 19 is released today. Inside are 10 pieces by 10 different authors from all over the world. Here’s pretty-city-boy Pearson, fresh from running the London Marathon last week, flashing an adoring/slightly creepy smile at the Page. Buy a copy for £3 and get it sent to your door here: 


Zelda Chappel’s ‘Icon’ in Page 18


This is exactly the kind of reaction that reading Zelda Chappel’s ‘Icon’ in Page 18 can induce. Quotation – 

“Afterwards the radio refused 
to sing the way it used to
the sun rising silent in the glass
so as not to be noticed
slipping in days right under 
our noses.”

You can have that very same reaction by getting the Page delivered to your door and then reading the words inside it here –

Sunday Chilling.


Having recently realised that there aren’t really many photos of the Pages ‘open’, it was suggested that some of you might not even know what the hell the inside of the little critters looks like. Here they are, guts splayed out all over the rug back in Wolverhampton. In amongst the guts is Nina Mazodier’s piece ‘Last embrace’ which begins, surreally :

‘This one slender and annoying girl, continuously chewing a dead bird in the coffee shop queue’

Lazing on the Sofa



A lazy Thursday morning for the Pages lounging on the sofa contrasted with a busy morning for deliveries and mail. Being able to read through the Page whilst stamping is a more than ample distraction. Here’s a particularly distracting few lines from Alice Ju’s poem ‘Renunciation’: 
‘Do not think I have forgotten how you
spilt monstrous, dripped monsters carried to the 
light-lit fence, light breaking paper tigers
lit not since.’
