The Belleville Park Pages is a thing that’s been happening for over two years now. It’s a thing that we really like doing and a thing that we think other people really like happening. Over 300 people from over 30 different countries have been printed in 38 Pages since June 2013. In total, we’ve distributed over 13,000 issues. That’s the real work of real writers being read by real eyes. We’re pretty damn proud about those facts. And you, whether you’re looking at this as a reader, a writer, a subscriber or a person who has found it on a tube/metro/bus should be proud about it too. We’ve got a lot of love for everyone who has been involved - so thanks. Thank you loads.
Now, we have got to do some other things as well as printing Pages. Since coming up with the crackpot idea of releasing a printed publication every 2 weeks in Paris, we’ve had to set aside other essential amenities. Sleeping on each other’s floors and in each other’s beds, telling lies to get side jobs, and staying in countries longer than we’re supposed to makes for good fiction and fun, but it also makes for real life zzz’s.
So, for at least a while, the Pages are going to get some rest. In the last 2 years we’ve developed loads of new ideas on how to keep making literature more approachable, affordable and fresh. Now it’s time to explore those ideas and attend to our personal lives a little more. This means we can’t commit to our original ideology of frequent print lit. We’ve loved doing this but we have to see what else we can do. We’re not disappearing, so stick with us and see what happens next. All the feelings, Editor-Boys x.
