EWF X, Online & Performance

EWF X Rosa Press: We Want Everything

In this EWF X event, Rosa Press features writers whose work is forthcoming in their second pamphlet series: Tabitha Lean, Chelsea Hart, and Carlos Soto Román. The readings articulate abolition, social reproduction, anti-statecraft, and communist futurity.

Rosa Press, established in 2020, is a collective that publishes pamphlets, posters, books, and miscellanea. The Press is committed to communism and its poetics. Rosa Press labours on unceded Wangal and Gadigal country. Publications include: Rosa Press Red Pamphlet Series (featuring Elena Gomez, Tom Melick, and Sarah Rodigari), Inferno by Andrew Brooks, and Kissing Other People or the House of Fame by Kay Gabriel.
