From the Editors

Thanks to member support and a dedicated all-volunteer staff of passionate board members, Philadelphia Stories is happy to announce some exciting new programs for writers:

Philadelphia Stories, Jr.: We are thrilled to launch this online quarterly literary magazine for local writers under the age of 18. Philadelphia Stories, Jr. expands our mission to develop a community of writers, artists, and readers through the magazine and educational programs by bringing these opportunities to young writers. Submissions now open!

The Sandy Crimmins National Prize for Poetry: We are honored to remember our friend and poetry board member, Sandy Crimmins, with this named prize. The first-place winning poet will receive a $1,000 cash award. Submission period June 1-December 1.

And mark your calendars for our “summer celebration” at the American Swedish Museum on June 12 from 4-8. Our annual party and live auction promises to be another fun day of music, mingling, and readings. The family-friendly event will launch the latest title from PS Books, Randall Brown’s award-winning flash fiction collection, Mad to Live.
