It wouldn’t be Bookie without Vanguard. We’re so glad that year on year, they return to bring their incredible readings to our lit fest. We catch up with Adrian Cross, Bookie trustee and Vanguard host, to chat about what’s to come at this years’ Vanguard Readings. What’s Vanguard Readings […]
‘Welcome to The Open Arms. What’ll it be?’
We’ve been simply blown away by the amazing creative pieces we’ve had for our ‘zines, Reset and The Great Indoors. Now it’s time to get the next round in.
So, we’ve thrown the doors wide open and are glad to announce the Margate Bookie’s third ‘zine, The Open Arms.
We’ve been amazed at how far the Margate Bookie ‘zines have reached across the world, and by how many people have been inspired to write.
As well as people across the world, a number of creative writers and artists in the UK responded to our call. From Yorkshire to Guernsey, from Liverpool to London and right across Kent, the level of home-grown talent has been astounding.
The Margate Bookie’s ‘zines have spread around the world since Justin Brown launched The Great Indoors (2020) and Reset (2021) in the last couple of years. They have featured some great creative writing and artistry by some amazingly talented people.
Great news everyone. Our Reset ‘zine is now available in paperback. Grab your copy here!
The second Margate Bookie ‘zine is a chance to relax, reset, and hear experiences about what has happened over the last year and what is to come. Writers and artists from across the world have contributed fiction, memoir, poetry and more, to show us their worlds and thoughts from the strange times we’ve shared to the hopes for a ‘new normal’ future.
