Chapter 23 is the newsletter of James Garside; British independent journalist, writer and world traveler. Part-time vagabond, full-time grumpy arse. Would you care for a cup of tea?

You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends. — Robert Anton Wilson

Chapter 23 is a multimedia newsletter written and published by independent journalist and writer James Garside.

Members get a secret newsletter on the 23rd of every month, unrestricted access to my work, and other goodies.

There’s weekly public posts, for anyone to enjoy, so you’ll always have plenty to read.

The newsletter is a mash-up of my likes, loves and links. You’ll learn a lot about writing and how to succeed as an artist or at the very least die trying.

I make all my writing available through Chapter 23 no matter where it’s published.

Sign up for the inside track on my creative projects or follow the public posts for free.

Chapter 23 is more than just a newsletter. Though what ‘more’ means is the subject of much debate.

Is it a not-so-secret secret society? A cult? Or just something to do when it’s raining?

What is Chapter 23?
