Succour Manchester Launch

succour_issue9_cover_pantone_mediumThe launch of Succour 9, Fantasies, will take place at Manchester’s Briton’s Protection on Friday July 31, kicking off at 8pm. Come down for drinks and words from Jonathan Hamnett, Laura Joyce, Annie Clarkson and Melissa Lee. All welcome and more info to come on the London launch.

‘Fantasies’ is out now and available in chain and independent shops. From the site:

Succour 9 is an astonishing collection of new work from some of today’s most exciting writers and artists, who present diverse interpretations of the theme, Fantasies.

The issue features: fiction by Royal Alvis, Anthony Banks, Kate Lermitte Campbell, Jonathan Hamnett, Nick Hunt, Laura Joyce, Joel Lane, Gregory Norminton and Ray Robinson; poetry by Arlene Ang, Ben Brooks, Orfhlaith Foyle, Joshua Jones, Rob A. Mackenzie and Robert Selby; artwork by Daniel Arsham and Eline McGeorge.

We’re also looking for submissions for Succour 10, The Banal:

For this issue, we’re interested in work that takes the everyday or the commonplace as its subject, considers the nature of boredom, or indeed that questions what we think of as banal. You may also like to consider The Banal as a counterpart to Fantasies (the S/S 2009 issue), in that the fantastical tends to emerge from, or be contained within, the banal.

But as ever, feel free to interpret the theme in any way you like.

5000 words/250 lines by August 21.
