How to Launch a Literary Magazine in a Global Pandemic | What is Brittle Star?
Play • 49 min

We're speeding down the hill of what is the end of 2020 and in the final episode of our very first podcast series we're celebrating with a crash and a pop! Brittle Star - the magazine we edit is full and fully 20 years old and this series has been raising a glass to its writers, the written word in general and creativity in lockdowns throughout history. But what is Brittle Star? We thought it would be lovely to finish the series ‘How to Launch a Literary Magazine in a Global Pandemic’ with a little bit of personal history of editing Brittle Star and a pop quiz! And of course, we have wonderful poems and short stories in the writers’ own voices for you! This episode features Jane Pearn, Jesse River Dylan Merry, Jane DeVoy and Shan Mukathar.

We'd love to hear from you!
