5 QUESTIONS FOR P’UNK AVE!

The P'unk Team!

The P’unk Team!

Since the summer, APIARY and P’unk Ave have been developing a brand new, totally beautiful, online home for Philly’s finest Lit. Now, we’d like to share what it’s like to work alongside some of the best designers in Philly. We asked P’unk about their design process, some of the site’s super-fresh features, and what it’s like to work with a bunch of poets. We can’t wait for launch!  Steve Burns

APIARY: P’unk prides itself on working with organizations that work towards social good. Why is important that P’unk Ave work with APIARY?

P’unk Ave: We work with organizations that have a vision for a more vibrant city. The chance to create a hub for a community as rich and diverse as the Philadelphia literary scene is so exciting to us and motivates us to solve difficult problems. Our experience bringing communities together has taught us that collaboration works best when everyone is genuinely committed to a cause, and that shared passion is worth more than any technical skill.

Edgar Allan Poe lives at 532 N. 7th Street, just off Spring Garden Street.
In a city of great poets, he is our greatest poet. Here are the kinds of things
he says in his poems:

 

Thy soul shall find itself alone

 

I would not love except where Death
Was mingling his with Beauty’s breath

 

Always write first things uppermost in the heart

 

                    I dwelt alone
                    In a world of moan
