This Advent we're very excited to launch our new Fanzine, called Discordant.  

Last winter we spent time asking the Proost family how we might improve and development what we do here.  One theme of the feedback was for us to be more imaginative about the way we communicate and the way we invite content and input from others.  Our fanzine aims to explore these ideas.

You can download our first issue for free here.

As we approach the season of Advent we are reminded again that we wait for God to come to us.  We wait in hope for we know that the presence of God with us - that we remember in the birth of Jesus - is transformative in ways that we can only begin to imagine.  We wait in hope.

Writing his seminal book 'God in the Manger' Dietrich Bonhoeffer considered the amazing hope of the birth of Christ.  

As October rolls into the beginnings of Winter so it's time for us to ramp up things here at Proost.

In the coming weeks you'll be seeing our Advent resources featured and you can look out for new material from Ian Adams amongst others.  We're also busy completing our first Proost Fanzine - a downloadable PDF or EBook sharing poetry, prayers, ideas and features as well as some surprises.  Watch out for more here soon.

So as this time we have some things to finish off and some features to share.

As the Summer stretches out in front of us we've dedicated these next few weeks at Proost to feature New Artists and profile their work.  These will be people who've not published with Proost before and we think may be new to many of you.

First in our New Artists Season on Proost is Rage/Despair/Hope which is a wonderful resource from Luton based 'Youthscape'.

Rage/Despair/Hope tells the story of Job and his battles with person struggles and suffering and how this affected his relationships with others and God.  Its beautiful and profound and faces up to many of the insecurities and life questions each of us face. 

Rage/Despair/Hope is available in three distinct packs:
