Book Launch in Sydney and Newcastle

Ten Years of Things that Didn’t Kill Us hits New South Wales

Thanks everyone who came to the Melbourne launch of our ten year

anniversary anthology and made it such a huge success – and what a party

afterwards! Thanks especially to Collected Works, Hells Kitchen and

Kristy Love for our various drinking venues. It was a great

afternoon/night and the stores have responded very well to the new

release. See for the full list of Victorian retailers.

Next up is Sydney and then the National Young Writers’ Festival in


We want every one of you in Sydney and everyone passing through on your

way to NYWF to come support the launch for ‘Ten Years of Things that

Didn’t Kill Us’. The people at the Mu-Meson Archives have welcomed us in

with open arms and we want to put on a good showing to return the

favour. For those of you not in the know – the Mu-Meson Archives screens

wicked cult films and ‘collectable’ footage, runs gigs, art exhibitions

and generally gets creative as hell in all the right ways! This is our

first Sydney launch outside of a set festival so get your arses down to

party with us. We’ll have local Paroxysm authors (including hopefully a

special guest) and full length sets from the touring crew, including the

Paroxysm Press publisher.


Mu-Meson Archives at Crn Parramatta Rd & Trafalgar St Annandale (at the

end of King Furniture building up the steel staircase.) October 2nd

7.30pm for 8pm start $5 at the door.

Then on to Newcastle to celebrate the event we first called our home

away from home – the National Young Writers’ Festival. Our ten year

anniversary release will be launched at the premier event of the long

weekend – the same event that sees the launch of the book celebrating

NYWFs own ten year history. (Expect some follow up information soon on

all the other gigs and panels the Paroxysm crew will be involved in at

this wicked festival.)


As part of the NYWF ten year anniversary event - Saturday 4th October,

6:00pm-7:30pm, Festival Club, National Young Writers’ Festival.

And don’t forget the Adelaide launch will be on us soon – note that the

venue is changing address but its still the same guys – and still on

light square. And some more good news – for the second half of his

‘split-set’ for the night Spindickle will be bringing the full band!


Friday 10th October, L!ve on Light Square, 63 Light Square. From 8pm -

Paroxysm spoken word plus acoustic from *Palky* and *Spindickle*.

18+ only. $5 entry.
