PUSH best of the first 10 issues

If you didn't already know, an anthology of the best of the first 10 issues of PUSH is to be published by East London Press on 01/12/14.

This is a very exciting time for me. I have been lucky to have had so many great writers who have associated themselves with the mag. Some known but most of them, complete outsiders

I used to use the word humbled as my emotion to all this journey, how the contributors and those who buy the mag have driven all this. But humbled is inappropriate. I am proud of everyone involved and right now, arm in arm, we are giving it large.

Fuck the mainstream. And anyone who has any kind of elitist agenda to literature. Anyone can express themselves. And we should always encourage silent voices to shout. Not think that writing is only for certain people.

The publishing game is 1976 and the Sex Pistols are rehearsing in the room next to you. You better believe.

I could say more. But the book says the rest. You can pre-order direct from the publishers here.
