PASTEL Magazine is an independent literature and pop culture publication, with one eye on eclectic and experimental artistry, and another on bridging print and digital media in PASPublication. Seeking talent unafraid to use every color in the crayon box, PASTEL give voice to the fringes, empowers emerging and existing artists to create without restriction, and celebrates the color of creativity.
Inside each highly saturated issue, a PASPantheon of PASPals and their stunning work await to whet your paints and stir your palette.
While PASTEL’s numerical installments showcase a plethora of new approaches to artistic bravery, spin-off series PASTEL Magazine: All-Stars sees previously published ‘PASPals’ return to share new work and talk their exciting contributions to local and global scenes in extended feature interviews, highlighting their commitment to the arts and the fruits of their labor.
At the close of each cycle, PASTEL celebrates with Live Launch events, releasing new issues for sale at a debut-only price point. Hosted by myself, Live Launches present an opportunity for published talent to perform their work, as well as share their inspirations, experiences and upcoming projects with audiences, in short interviews conducted by myself. Live Launches are fantastic opportunities to share a drink with local talent and become immersed in an exciting era of Queensland artistry and independent publishing.
