The Suburban Review #23—PUNCTURE


The Suburban Review #23: PUNCTURE features poetry, fiction, comics, and art that pierces and ruptures. This special issue also showcases the Kingston Arts’ Artz Blitz 2021 competition winners, which our Associate Editor and Media Manager Maya Pilbrow had the pleasure of judging. 

Gaze at the world through a window with John Francis Istel and enter the hive mind with Lily Cameron. Chris Armstrong makes an unlikely pairing of Gwen Harwood and Mother energy drink. Commune with other realities with Susannah Bowen while Em Readman grapples with the fog of memory. Leonie Brialey pays tribute to the infinite poetry of the line while Louis Klee takes a contemplative turn around Carlton Gardens. Stand at the precipice with Erica Louise and reach into another world with Camilla Eustance
