It’s hard to believe an entire year has passed since we announced our fifth anniversary!
As we enter year six of publication, we can reflect on another good year. Why? One word: members. Thanks to member support, we were able to take part in the following events since the last issue:
Free Library Book Festival: We distributed thousands of free magazines to readers both local and national, to both current fans and new ones.
Launch of PROMPTED: This fourth title from PS Books is an anthology from the students of Greater Philadelphia Wordshop Studio and features both established and emerging writers from the area.
Workshops for writers: We continued to offer affordable workshops for writers, including fiction workshops from Aimee LaBrie and Elizabeth Mosier.
Free spring reading: We hosted a free reading at The Belgian Café showcasing our spring authors, including our 2009 Marguerite McGlinn Prize for Fiction winner, Katherine Hill.
Free reading series at Rosemont Writers Retreat: We offered free readings and “meet the author” events each noon during our third annual Rosemont Writers Retreat.
But the best member reward is in your hands: a four-color, free print magazine that showcases our region’s writing and artistic talent. Thanks to our members for continuing to keep Philadelphia Stories free to all readers, and also continuing to support reading and writing through our workshops and other programs.
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
All the best,
Carla & Christine
