Issue Twenty-Three!!

AT LAST, WE’VE ARRIVED. Here we are, at the threshold of Issue Twenty-Three. This one’s being worn around Seattle by Operative Rosa, the Safety Pin Review’s first trip to Washington. This story has been in transit for over a month, and the radio supplemental appears in a previous post way back in time; you can download the audio from there, if you wish. We are glad to be back on our feet. We hope you missed us. We missed you, truly we did. So now then:

    I LA-ove your concept of operatives wearing the published work.
    If you ever want to expand the safety-pin wearing to the East Coast, I am available, out and about, and know others of the same ilk who would be delighted to carry on your mission.

    • Awesome! We’ve had a bunch of East Coast operatives thus far, but would love some more! Hit us up via email if you’re interested in wearing and we will suit you up with a story!
