Volume 7, Issue 2 – February 2024

We are pleased to announce the launch of Volume 7, Issue 2 of Riffs! This issue brings together work developed in 2019 by members of the Riffs editorial board as part of their Write Club, designed and run by Prof. Nick Gebhardt (Birmingham City University, UK). The pieces engage with George Lucas’ (dir.) American Graffiti (1973), a film soundtracked through 1960s and 50s music, overheard from radios, diner juke boxes, and the cars of 1962 Modesto city.
