Several of the contributors to Epiphany; A Literary Journal joined us for a night of readings. Epiphany is committed to publishing literary work in which form is as valued as content. They look for writing, wherever it may fall on the spectrum from experimental to traditional, that is thoroughly realized not only in its vision but also in its commitment to artistry. They are especially open to writers whose explorations of new territory may not yet have found validation elsewhere.
