Pigeon Pages is a literary space where emerging and established writers from all backgrounds are encouraged to nest together. We seek to champion voices that are not always allowed to sing loudly. The reading series acts as a physical space to host our diverse writers, and the online literary journal is a supportive platform accessible anywhere and to all. Pigeon Pages NYC showcases established and emerging voices in literature side by side.
