Readings from the Issue 16 launch event,
16th May 2021

The launch of Pushing Out the Boat Issue 16 was held online in the afternoon of Sunday 16th May 2021. The event started with a slideshow of the artwork from issue 16.  Then, after introductions by the Editor, Lily Greenall, and Foreword writer, Sheila Templeton, a selection of 15 contributors read their poems or extracts from their stories, showcasing the rich variety of content in Issue 16.

The following video clips were extracted from the recording of the proceedings. The individual clips may take a few moment to load, so please be patient. For the best effect, we suggest clicking on the full-screen icon to activate full-screen view.

An article about the launch can be found on the POTB Blog. Copies of Issue 16 can be purchased in our Online Shop.
