You are invited to the zine launch of 'Closeness', Sapphic Writers' third issue of their zine project.

Closeness will be released on the 27th of December, featuring writing on the themes of home, family (chosen or otherwise), relationships and general coziness.

Sapphic Writers is a collective of women and non-binary people who all share a mutual sapphic experience. This collective came together to give people a space to release their creative energies, seek out advice, and find a safe community free of judgment and prejudice.

The event will feature readings from the selected authors, who will have the chance to discuss their pieces and answer questions from the audience.

Contributors to 'Closeness' include:

Alice Godber
Allison Fradkin
Chyna Parker
Divyanshi Dash
Duna Haller
Emily Powers
Gayle Smith
Han Raschka
Hannah George
Jess Magnan
Jess Wright
Julia DaSilva
Kelly Wilk
