We celebrate the best Philadelphia writing on the page, on stage, and in the street; we connect Philadelphians through the power of their own voice. We are seeking strong original work from writers who live in the Philadelphia area, or who have lived, loved, and been inspired in our great city.
Tips From the Editor
Please note that we are seeking and will prioritize writing from authors who currently live in the Philadelphia area. We also welcome writing by authors connected strongly to our city through experience or inspiration. Just because we are seeking Philadelphia writers does not mean we want writing ABOUT Philadelphia: go easy on the cheesesteaks, Liberty Bell, and "gritty" imagery. We are seeking to capture the liveliness and diversity of our city in our time through the voices of our residents, not offer a guided tour through the city itself.
