Thank you readers, writers, artists, friends, and family. Thank you not only for your generosity, but for believing in APIARY and, most importantly, the writers of Philadelphia. Over the past month, our ambitious Indiegogo campaign has raised a stunning $6,438! That’s 43% of our goal! Because of you, we’re on our way to building a shiny new website with P’unk Ave ! APIARY’s new literary digs will host the city’s first Literary Archive, a space where you, literary lover, can discover new work by Philadelphia’s diverse culture of local writers. We are so, so excited to bring this brand-new platform to you. Thank you for helping us do just that.

Spiders?

 

Housewife

When the spiders come
inside, surprised off
the cacti that summered out,

and string up the ceiling,
and lace the white curtain
across in the scant light,

the beauties, I breathe them down.
Unpinned, they fall
into my fine-lipped cup,

the paper lid on
through the whole house
to the sunk garden,

the hopes handed out, and staying out.

CRUSHIN’ AESTHETIC SECTARIANISM & THE REVOLUTION <3

Frank Sherlock, Philadelphia’s Poet Laureate, and Samir Slipchenko, a member of the Philadelphia Youth Poetry Movement (PYPM), spoke to us about what APIARY means to them and what our publication brings to the Philly poetry scene! We not only bring people of all poetic persuasions together, but we throw some serious parties too. To create more opportunities for poets to share their work, support APIARY!

 

“However APIARY does it, they’ve managed to just pull everything together.”

 

“I remember cutting out little poems and carrying them with me – and then being published there.”

 

Thank you so much Frank & Samir!

XO,

APIARY
