Imminent is a collection of words and images by contemporary creative writers and artists around the UK. I invited creative people who I know and who I know are wonderful to contribute to this new venture with me, to create a small periodical of responses to our current environmental context.
In editing Issue 1, I discovered thematic groupings emerging from the generous contributions from artists and writers. Their interests have developed my own, so I have written an introductory piece that sets the scene for the first issue, on the physicality of material.
The zine will not exist online, because it needs to be a material thing. I believe that the experience of holding something in your hand that is tangible and has been produced from the world, and considering how that thing came to be, as well as our relationship with it, is part of the environmental connection that we need to renew in our current times.
Imminent has been produced in the most environmentally way that I could, using recycled paper and plant based inks, printed through a riso printer running on sustainable energy sources.
I hope you will enjoy this new zine, which I aim to produce twice per year. The proceeds from the zine will go back to covering the cost of the next issue, so please consider supporting this and the wonderful artists and writers who have contributed.
