friends, enemies, comrades…

sick leave is a monthly reading series and journal that celebrates new, weird, difficult and interesting writing — whatever form it takes. sick leave is very fun….

in 2020, we want to release a third edition of our journal, continue paying our monthly readers, and deliver on some very special plans….

sick leave runs on donations and journal purchases. to keep it fully sick & out of the workforce (grant applications, awful), we invite you to join us for a night of drinks!! (donation, lovely) readers!! (talented, stunning) and celebrating art!! (festive, gorgeous)

a hell of a line up, with readings from dear friends and special guests:

– toby fitch !!
– patrick hunn !!
