We are excited to announce that Scribble is teaming up with The Rag & Bone Man Press for the third time!
The Rag & Scribble Salon is happening next Wednesday 9 November. This cozy evening of wine and words brings together Melbourne’s literary community to share and hear works of all genres.
Hosted by The Rag & Bone Man Press’s very own Dan Christie, the line-up includes multi-talented guests speakers and an open mic. We encourage everyone to bring their latest, favorite, and unheard works to share.
