Pushing Out the Boat Launch of New Issue of North-East Scotland’s Literary Magazine

On 30 Apr 2017

An afternoon celebrating the launch of Issue 14 of the Pushing Out the Boat magazine of new writing and visual arts. The event features readings by writers featured in the magazine and the opportunity to see some of the original artwork.

Join us in the peaceful setting of Newton Dee village to be among the first to receive your own copy of the new issue of the Pushing Out the Boat (POTB) literary magazine featuring high-quality prose, poetry and art selected from a unique blend of local and global pieces. View some of the original artwork featured in the latest magazine and have the opportunity to chat with some of the magazine contributors over a drink and nibbles. Then enjoy a stimulating afternoon listening to writers reading from their poems and stories from POTB Issue 14.
A copy of the new publication is included in the ticket price but copies of the magazine will also be on sale for anyone wishing to buy extra copies – they make a great gift idea.

Opening Days and Times:


Doors open 1330 hours for 1430 hours start. Ends 1700 hours.

Ticket Information:

Tickets £10 (including a free copy of the new magazine) must be purchased in advance via the Pushing Out the Boat website (Tickets are not available at the door).
