You’d think a bunch of writers would never be at a loss for words, right? Well, we’re finding it hard to express how excited we all are to bring you APIARY 5. Not only is this our biggest issue yet, with 10,000 copies for local readers’ consumption, but it’s our first FULL COLOR edition, full of evocative images by three very different local photographers, Andrea Poulsen, David Savoie and Jeffrey Stockbridge. It’s the first time we’ve invited a guest editor to join us, none other than Frank Sherlock, the Philadelphia poet who, in his work as a teacher, activist, and city explorer, embodies the best of what Philly’s writing scene has to offer. And we’re also including a download link for an audio mini-edition of the magazine, to best showcase the spoken word poets who often grace our pages. Sound good? Then mark off the First Friday in December on your calendar and party with us at the Latvian Society on December 7th. You can get your own copy of APIARY 5 — and one for a friend, or even a classroom set for teachers!
