As the autumn shadows gather, we’re thrilled to announce Exeunt’s latest zine, Ghosts. It’s full of eerie essays, harrowing illustrations, games and collages inspired by theatre and the uncanny. It’s only available to members of our Friends Scheme.
Since we launched the scheme last December it’s revolutionised what we can do, helping us to offer writers paid commissions for the first time, to cover more regional work, and to mentor new voices. But we’re still run on a shoestring, and we need your help. We want to pay all our writers for their work, and to secure Exeunt’s longterm future in difficult times for arts criticism. Sign up to our Friends Scheme here by October 28th to support us, and to get your copy of Ghosts.
