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

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.
