I’m very excited for the upcoming launch of Vignette Press’ latest mook (magazine-book), the Geek Mook. It features writing to do with all things geeky from writers unveiling their inner geeks, and geeks finding their writing voice. My piece ‘Make the rich tap out: the class politics of professional wrestling’ is my (not so serious) attempt to justify my geeky obsession with wrestling. It’s a piece I’m pretty proud of.
I’m also very excited because I will doing a reading from my piece on the night – in costume! I’ll be donning my bolshi wrestling persona, red tights and all. Other contributors will be wearing dressing in the theme of their pieces and others are encouraging to dress as geeky as possible.
It’s on Friday the 13th from 6pm at the Bella Union Bar in Trades Hall on the corner of Lygon and Victoria Streets in Melbourne. It would be great to see some familiar faces there.
