It’s always nice to see a newspaper we printed out in the wild. This is issue 5 of Structo, a fiction and poetry magazine sitting pretty in the Rough Trade shop (image courtesy of Structo Magazine).
Issue five features 13 short stories, seven poems, two classic essays and a new interview with author Iain M. Banks. It is also available from the Structo website.

Matthew Sheret writes
A year ago, in a town far, far away, We Are Words + Pictures printed Paper Science and debuted it at the Thought Bubble Festival. It’s easily one of the most delightful shows on the comics convention circuit for the way it levels all of the creators and captures a brilliant energy between attendees and exhibitors. Our newspaper, an anthology featuring a slew of small press creators, went down fabulously.
But even in the face of all of that, my highlight of the show was probably the photo above: Iron Man, reading the newspaper I made. Brilliant.
One year later and we brought the third issue to the show. Again it went down a treat, but something seemed to be missing, it was as if some presence I’d not felt since the previous show, just wasn’t quite there…
Until we heard the wheezing of an old friend.
Paper Science 3 was a huge success, thanks to the creators, to Thought Bubble’s organisers and to Newspaper Club, who once again made the whole thing effortless.
And no, I’ve got no idea how we can top this next year.
Paper Science 3 is available to buy here!

We’re enjoying Dan Sumption‘s brilliant photos of the Interesting North newspapers in action.
Interesting North is the Sheffield version of Interesting, a conference with a difference, established by Newspaper Club co-founder Russell. You might be able to spot him below (thinking deeply, or possibly napping).
As IntNorth attendee Gemma_T pointed out on Twitter, conference newspapers are a genius idea as everyone who comes early has something to read.
They’re also great for doodling as you digest all those interesting talks.

A big thanks to Bang Dream Machine in Brighton for printing two brilliant newspapers with us. One colour and one black and white. Both super smart.
