Material's first collection. Material is a celebration of the talent in the North East which we feel is not being done justice by the majority of periodicals out there. Not only do we want to produce a magazine full of quality local writings - we also want to create a supportive network where people can feel comfortable, learn and be a part of the bubbling creative movement which looks to be kicking off in the North East. (Keep an eye out for events in the future). No cliché, no cliques – just quality pieces of written work stapled together and sent out to stand proud in the face of mass mediocrity. So if you’re looking for somewhere to showcase your fiction, poetry, script, diary entries, ramblings, ideas or any other letters-on-a-page then drop us an email. We hope you enjoy the first issue!
