We're back – here's where you can pick up your free copy of our September issue

  • Cover excerpt

It's been a while, but we're back. After a period of lockdown-enforced hiatus, the wonderful glow of our successful crowdfunding campaign, and a few false starts as we tried to remember where we'd saved all the files we need to put the thing together, The Skinny's September 2020 issue is here.

It's very much a child of lockdown, looking back on the change we've all been through, and forward to the changes we want to see in the future. Among a whole lot else, we looking at two groups trying to change Scotland's music scene for the better, the comedians tackling sexual harrassment in their industry, and the film festivals adapting to a new online-first format.

This issue celebrates the great joy that can come from culture and the arts, but acknowledges that things can always be improved and that change doesn't happen by accident. It's been inspiring to produce, and hopefully you all get something out of it when you pick up your copy. Thanks so much to everyone who supported us to get back on our feet, and to everyone with lovely words to say about the magazine in the past few months. 

As for where you can pick one up, we'll be updating our list of stockists on this page and on social media throughout the month. We're expecting things to be a bit more ad-hoc than usual given the whole lockdown business, but we will be available in supermarkets and shops across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee from this week. The full list is below, and there's an interactive map below that should help you work out which drop is nearest to you.
