Mixer meeting 30 Nov 7pm

We’re looking for people  to contribute to writing, interviews, poems or illustrations for a new voluntary community publication.

The Mixer is new. It is all about working together.  It will be put together by a variety of people in as many different styles as they like. Could you be one of The Mixer’s guest editors and work with an editorial team to create an issue? There can be as much, or as little, practical help as you want. The Mixer is for anyone who wants to use the opportunity to create something new, something specifically made as a response to Mixing it up: interview with a neighbour, serious jokes, small fry, local or historical insights, drawing invisible boundaries, re-mapping the hill, etcetera. 

The Mixer’s emphasis will be on interaction and collaboration, helping people to surprise themselves  as much as everybody else.  It will open windows and doors, which are now closed. It will take their hill to your doorstep and back. There will be space for news about things happening, especially events that encourage everyone to have a go. 

There will be an open meeting for anyone who would like to get involved or contribute to the Mixer in any way on Wednesday, 30 November at 7.30 at the Hill Station, Kitto Rd, SE14 5TY. If you would like to guest edit, bring your proposal for format and theme or content and let’s see what happens from there.

Have you a story to be told in prose, verse, fiction or reportage? Tell it! Or an image in line, paint, digital or film? Show it! The more voices that are heard and points of view aired, the better.  Or send in your contact details and proposal to Susan Edwards at
