Issue 31 May 2016

Since the sun is shining outside, I’ve opted for a summery cover image for this month’s issue. It’s the first of several by The Lost Fox – one lies behind every article.

Housebound political Marmite Julian Assange answers our questions. He’s undoubtedly a headlining interview, whichever side your toast is buttered. We also have chin wags with the director of Notes On Blindness, South Manchester Credit Union, electronic producer Mark Pritchard and The Wonder Inn’s Kirsty Almeida.

Navigate the rest of the links to the right of this page for an all-you-can-read bargain across music, film, food, poetry, and more.

If you’d like to get involved with writing or photography for any of the sections then please drop me a line – ian at nowthenmagazine dot com.

Enjoy the read.
