Blam. Even a printer-less rain-full Bank Holiday can’t stop us from getting the Page out, just about. Page 21 is released today. Pick it up, open it out and read poems and short stories written in cities from Stockholm to Sevilla and Paris to Philadelphia. Here’s the boyo Jean, kindly giving a few minutes of time to stand in the rain on his break from work. If you’d like it sent to your door, grab one here for £3 or head to one of our stockists.
You can now pick up a copy of the latest Page from the Foyles Bookshop branch at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre. The Southbank Centre is an area of galleries, theatres and general cool things to do on the south side of the River Thames. Grab a Page for £2 and chill by the river for £0.
So, like, yeh. We said some words in Florence at the NYU La Pietra Dialogues discussion on ‘The Power of Poetry in Contemporary European Society’ a few weeks ago. Some of these words were live-tweeted on their twitter feed, along with photos and other little bits. Here’s a few select segments of things that were said – and you can see the others on their twitter.
Our Spring Subscription starts with Page 20. Subscribe to get the next 7 issues delivered to your door for £19 wherever you are on the big ball we all live on. Remi likes pizza, and the Pages. He likes them both. Grab a subscription here for contemporary writing from all over the world.
Page 20 is being released later today. It’s the first Page for 7 months in which both editors have been in Paris to put it together, together. Inside are 10 writers from 10 different cities across the world, including Birmingham, England which is very close to where one of the co-editors was born. You can grab a copy for £3 here, now, and we’ll send it to you, there, wherever you are. Here’s the bronzed beauty Evan showing it off back at Spoken Word in Paris on Monday.
In the last few months, we’ve printed a few Pages with very slight errors inside that we haven’t wanted to sell. Rather than let them lay to waste, I’ve started leaving them on the underground and on buses and on benches and in cafes for people to read. If you pick one up or see one hanging around, let us know. Streetwords.
