The Last of Fall Issue

Dear Readers,

It's our Last of Fall issue!

The past three months have been a whirlwind. What a fantastic ride it has been!

Steel City and Affinity CoLab Presents Story/Poetry Slam:
Our September 2017 Story and Poetry Slam at Steel City Coffeehouse included the prompt RELIEF and became a promotional event for the Benefit Concert for Americares' hurricane relief efforts. We raised money by raffling off tickets to this incredible concert featuring some of our favorite local bands.

In October, we had a spooktacular themed slam that inspired our micro-issue: Ghost Stories, Words Unsaid. And, our most recent event with the theme, Tradition, was one of the most well-attended events yet! Our next event is NEW YEAR'S EVE! At our favorite coffeehouse Steel City on 12/31/17 from 2:00-4:00 pm, please join us for an Anti-Resolution Party!

The Creative Light Factory
We at Affinity CoLab are pleased to announce that we are joining forces with the Collegeville writers' meet-up, Just Write! Our mission to open a physical space for workshopping and writing is officially underway. This special nonprofit, Creative Light Factory, will open March of 2018, and we could not be more thrilled. Memberships available soon!
