Issue 113 August 2017

This is our third and final online issue for 2017. We’re back in print next month and every month until the New Year.

We’re pleased to have the accomplished digital illustrations of Nikita Kaun decorating our pages, as well as great pieces on Basic Income, Devolution and Progressive Politics, plus interviews with local electronic duo Animat and the Audacious Art Experiment, and plenty of Tramlines reviews from our cohort of music lovers.

We hope to have a resource for new writers online by next month, which will give some tips about submitting writing to Now Then for the first time, but feel free to get in touch with me in the meantime if you have something to say.
