Readings from The Avenue Volume iii: Woman

Please join us on Thursday June 30th to celebrate the new release from The Avenue Journal's Volume iii: Woman

This is a free event featuring readings by

Alisha Ebling
Dave K. 
Anne Walters
Alana Capria

The Avenue is a new, bi-annual literary journal with a mid-Atlantic geographical focus. For this issue, we requested that readers and writers consider the myriad realities of Woman and to then write with Woman in mind. The volume, Woman, is the final result and we couldn't be more proud. Our contributors wrote fiction, poetry and nonfiction that define the indefinable: Woman.

Queerspace for Pulse

QUEERSPACE is an event created by The Jordyn Show and Ian Lesage Johnson that aims to enrich the queer community in Philly and beyond!
Come together with us as we celebrate our queerness together and enjoy some local performance, visual art, poetry & music. 
The proceeds of this first event will be sent directly to a TBD charity in Orlando aimed at helping those affected by the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. 
The queer community worldwide felt the blow of this horrible event, and we would like to give you guys a safe space to be who you are authentically without fear while helping others. 
Much love,
The Jordyn Show and Ian L. Johnson
