Who We Are:

APIARY Magazine
is a free literary magazine written for and by Philadelphians. With every issue, reading, workshop, and dance party, we aim to celebrate Philadelphia as a great literary city on the page, stage, and in the street. APIARY was founded in 2009 by Lillian Dunn and Tamara Oakman and continues to run as an all-volunteer collective of friends and artists today, all working to amplify local literature and the creative, multicultural communities who make Philly exceedingly dope. Our pages and the space we make remain open and accessible to everyone - to folks of all ages and backgrounds, of all skill levels and expertise. We rely on these connections, their vibrancy and their variety, to inspire and shape the work we create together. And we always party.

Current Staff: Hiwot Adilow, Steven Burns, Amanda Buck, Kai Davis, Kareem Groomes, Veronica Nocella, Alexa Smith

What We Do
We publish a stunning (totally free) literary magazine teeming with local young, emerging, and established writers and artists once a year.

We invite our authors to party with us in person - to showcase their work, meet fellow writers, and be seen and heard

We partner with incredible organizations to enhance and anchor the themes in our pages, whiling raising awareness around their particular cause.

We work collaboratively as a collective to highlight our strengths, overcome challenges, and learn from one another.

We connect and educate writers with affordable workshops and free readings.

We have fun.
