An Invitation


To launch Issue 13, we’re throwing a party in Glasgow on 14th October 2016.

It promises to be quite the event. As well as readings from some of New Escapologist’s finest, we’ve got live music from the incredible LD Beghtol, Reggie C. King and their band. If you can get here, it’s truly a night not to be missed. There won’t be any more like these!

We’ve got guests and performers coming from New York City, London, Belfast and Dublin. Why don’t you join us?

Want to come? Please do! Go here for full details and to grab a FREE ticket right away.
