Angie Hart is hilarious

We’re back with more readings from the magnifico Issue 6 launch.

Here is the very very funny Angie Hart discussing her contempt for insects in answer to Ampersand’s ongoing column, Oxford Men’s College Entrance Exam Questions 1957-67 As Answered By Contemporary Musicians – Question 7: Why are there so many insects?


Reading #4: Laura Jean McKay

Laura reads an excerpt from her story ‘Coming Up’, taken from her short story collection Holiday in Cambodia, published last month by Black Inc.

Reading #3: Kate Holden

The wonderful and very pregnant Kate Holden reads her piece, ‘The Door Between: Two Rooms of Love’, at the Issue 6 launch in May.

Reading #2: Helen Razer

Helen reads NOT her piece from the magazine, because it’s “too sappy”, but a revised version on the theme of new love.

Recorded at Ampersand’s Melbourne launch in May.

Melbourne launch videos: #1 Mr Darren Hanlon

Here’s the first of our set of recordings from Ampersand’s issue 6 launch in May, held at 1000 Pound Bend in Melbourne, in collaboration with the Emerging Writers Festival.

Darren Hanlon reading his suite of poems from the issue – plus one extra he wrote in the car on the drive down from Sydney – ‘Signposts Hinting at the Existence of Love’.


Issue 6 – new video

We simply make to love very amateur previews of the magazines, and couldn’t let you down with the latest. Enjoy!
