BIG Birthday, BIG Reveal: The Purple Breakfast Review

As part of our ‘Big 5th Birthday’ week of celebrations, today is the day that we officially release Issue 5 of The Purple Breakfast Review and that means it’s time to reveal the new front cover!


Issue 5: Sound and Silence!

'From emerging writers to established poets and singer-song writers, all of the pieces published here are unified in their pursuit to explore the theme of ‘Sound and Silence’ in a truly unique and interesting way. 

They push the boundaries of sounds and silences, of place, space and the written word, and they do this through an interrogation of a wide variety of subject matter.'

A huge thank you to the fabulous Emily Young and Jacqueline Kwofie for their illustration and design work and to all our writers (Aimee, Ben, Chris, Christina, Damini, Donna, Eileen, Hailey, Jade, Kerry, Lerah, Lindsay, Lucia, Sam, Sarah, Shirley, Stuart, Toby and Waiwai) for sharing their writing with us for this particular issue. Without you, ‘Sound and Silence’ would not have been possible.

If you’ve pre-ordered your copy, it’ll be on its way to you this week!

If you’ve still got to order yours, you can do so from our shop.

We hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we’ve enjoyed compiling it.
