What’s in a Heady Mix box?
Heady Mix collections are delivered to your doorstep every two months and contain three books that have been curated around a specific theme. The theme is carefully chosen to highlight an issue, a stereotype or bias that impacts the collection’s underrepresented group. The two novels, in the box, have been carefully selected by our Chief Curator, Justina. She has taken time to search out new stories that have not be shared widely enough, that offer new exciting perspectives, will enlighten you and help change the way you see the world. The third book is an anthology of stories, essays and flash fiction centred around that collection’s theme. Plus, a surprise gift is included in every box – and it too is based on the collection’s theme. The debut collection features special gifts as a thank you to the founding members that purchase it.
