Pushing Out the Boat

2007 sees the launch of Issue 6 of Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland's own prestigious magazine of new writing. This event is not to be missed! Why not come and join us, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to some of the best writers in the North-East reading from their own work in the pleasant surroundings of Woodend Barn. The previous five volumes proved highly successful and we believe this one to be even better. Copies will be available for purchase.

What the reviewers said of Issue 5

Well-produced, nicely balanced in terms of content, this is one of the most attractive magazines of its kind in Scotland, providing an important forum for new poetry and prose.

Alan Spence, writer and Artistic Director, Word, the University of Aberdeen Writers' Festival

Yet again it looks great. I got quite excited when it came through and couldn't wait to get five minutes to sit down with it. I have been impressed by the continuing high standard. My congratulations to the editorial team.
