Since 2011, Scissors Paper Pen has been making lit happen in the capital: coordinating creative events, supporting young writers and shining lights on emerging wordsmiths and their works of wonder. Over five years, the collective have won state and national awards for programming. Alumnae have been published nationally, and accoladed in fierce and exciting abundance. Now it's time for a change, as SPP grows into 2016 and the next five years. Join us as we celebrate the SPP old guard handing their pens to a new team of SPP directors and coordinators, with ceremony, music, drinks, readings and performances from old and new SPP favourites, and a few surprises.
