Platform Review developed from ARTS by the People’s popular open-mic nights. First-time readers who attend our literary open mic, The Platform, receive a second round of applause for having the courage to present their work to an audience. We strive to create an environment that welcomes and encourages writers at all stages of their craft and we love New Jersey writers. Our on line journal, Platform Review, is focused on bringing this same tone of inclusivity and community. We want submissions from local (New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York City) voices and emerging writers.
