The Crimson Launch

  • Lighthouse Bookshop 43 West Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9DB United Kingdom (map)

Monstrous Regiment Magazine’s Crimson Issue is the first instalment of a new feminist literary mag featuring fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and visual arts led by Scotland-based creatives. It will launch at 8pm at Lighthouse Bookshop on August 2nd. You can secure your tickets from Lighthouse Bookshop's website by clicking here.

Each issue of the magazine is themed around a certain colour, and all submissions are inspired in some way by the connotations that that colour might evoke or represent. The Crimson Issue explores everything from body image to grief, from speculative fiction to red photography film, and from misremembering to revenge porn and homophobia.

Come along to the Crimson launch to hear readings on some of the above topics, check out the magazine itself, and maybe even get your hands on some suitably red vino…. You’ll also be able to chat to the authors and artists, and hear all about the next magazine instalment: Emerald!

Bonus points to all guests who wear red.
