Really excited to launch the Viewmaster pamphlet with the lovely people at Stewed Rhubarb Press. The launch is happening this Tuesday 29 July in Looking Glass Books (3 Porter’s Walk, EH3 9GG) at 6.30pm. The show is free, the pamphlet is £3 (you can buy physical or e-book copies here), and it would be awesome to see you there.
Stewed Rhubarb is unhealthy ecstatic to announce its publication of two new pamphlets: Jo Clifford’s “The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven” and Ryan Van Winkle’s “ViewMaster”.
We’ll be celebrating with a launch party at Looking Glass Books. It’s FREE ENTRY, with a WINE RECEPTION and READINGS by the two authors.
The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven – Jo Clifford
A candlelit, peaceful, meditative end to a hard day on the Fringe. The archbishop of Glasgow called this vision of a transgender Jesus ‘an affront to the Christian faith’. He never saw it. Listen to those who did: ‘Queen Jesus reminds us of the purity of sex and pleasure, the importance of empathy. We hold hands, and remember what it means not to be alone’. Jo Clifford’s revolutionary and spiritual work reaches the Fringe for the first time since its explosive and controversial 2009 opening. It promises to be very special.
ViewMaster – Ryan Van Winkle & Dan Gorman
A personal slideshow for your eyes and ears only. Poet Ryan Van Winkle and musician Dan Gorman lead you on a playful, sometimes surreal, journey to a distant land and bring you back in under 15 minutes. Ryan Van Winkle is Poet in Residence at Edinburgh City Libraries. In 2012 his show Red, Like Our Room Used to Feel was one of the top ten best-rated shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Dan Gorman is a musician who has done field recordings in Afghanistan, Syria and an abandoned military base in Germany. Part of the Made in Scotland showcase.
Fuelled by ginger wine & late nights, Stewed Rhubarb Press specialises in publishing pamphlets & poetry by the best spoken word artists out there.
