The Crater/Sharon Borthwick Advent Calendar 2018

Via Richard Parker…

This year Sharon Borthwick’s done our advent calendar! The Borthwick Riot Calendar contains all sorts of incendiary material, 25 poems, a colour collage and lots of Xmas cheer – it’s also definitely NSFW. £5 and P&P, it’s on the website now: www.craterpress.co.uk  Copies will be sent out about the middle of November – orders from outside of the UK may not receive their copies before December/advent.

Also, there’ll be an Cratery Xmas party on the 1st of December at The Field, 385 New Cross Road, London, where we’ll celebrate Sharon’s advent intervention and yuletide cheer. Sharon will read, there’ll be an Xmas performance from the Ninnies and there’ll be a bunch of other stuff too.

Merry advent one and all!
