Please RSVP before Monday 19 April to receive the zine. The zine will also be available as a free download from Thursday 22 April.
Playing With Fire is a platform for survivor writing organised by the artist Jet Moon. The Live Reading is the culmination of a series of events funded by Arts Council England, which allowed Jet the time to finish their book, hold two peer to peer survivor writing workshops and produce this live reading event.
Jet’s book is set in the suburbs of Auckland, NZ in the late 70s and early 80s, as disco is ceding to punk, and tells the story of an uneasily queer kid, growing up amidst gang violence, homophobia and rape culture.
