In an era when magazine after magazine is meeting an unfortunate demise, the launch of a new publication is certainly a cause for celebration. APIARY, which bills itself as "Philadelphia's only all-ages literary magazine," is ringing in its inaugural issue with Light and Honey, an afternoon-long multi-art extravaganza. Poetry readings and musical performances from artists of all ages and backgrounds will highlight the shindig, which stands to be a live interpretation of the magazine's own contents. Along with the scheduled performances is a series of open mics, with one dedicated to acoustic music and one just for younger creatives. Of course, issues of APIARY will be in full supply at the event, but you can preview some of the writings at the mag's website if you simply cannot wait.
