And attend a night of fantastic readings and tremendous art from the contributors who’s work has made it in to the collection. This event is free for all so come along, invite your friends.

Although attendance is free for everyone, as Recollections is a limited edition collection with only 150 unique copies available, we will soon be posting a link to where you can reserve your issue. To collect your issue you must attend the event, otherwise you forfeit your issue to another attendee. It is not necessary for you to have a PEACH membership, however priority will be given to those who do have a membership. You do not need to reserve an issue but chances are they are going to go quick.
