Extra Teeth: Words with Bite

Extra Teeth is a literary magazine based between Leith and Glasgow that celebrates bold words with bite, original illustration and design and the enduring power of print. First launched in 2019 following a successful Kickstarter campaign, the magazine now has three issues under its belt featuring innovative original prose from Scotland and beyond, by bestselling, award-winning and emerging writers. This special event features readings from three contributors to Issue Three – Bhavika Govil, Ross McCleary and Catherine Wilson – for which 500 submissions were received at the height of the pandemic, making the most recent instalment of Extra Teeth the darkest and most otherworldy issue so far. Compèred by co-founders Jules Danskin and Heather Parry, who also share how the magazine came to be, this stage edition of Extra Teeth offers some unique perspectives on making it through lockdown, along with a discussion about what’s next for the magazine.

This event was filmed live at the 2021 Edinburgh International Book Festival. Some of the participants in the event took part remotely and some were on stage, in the venue.
