What do we do?
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.
Pigeon Pages is a literary journal that grew organically from the successful reading series, Pigeon Pages NYC. Pigeon Pages publishes prose online, and Pigeon Pages NYC showcases local writers monthly at PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn. The reading series and literary journal naturally support each other. 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.
We believe that writing should come from a place of joy and creativity, not a desire to preen. We have a heartbeat, and we are proud of the eggs we hatch.
Welcome to the nest.
Who are we?
Alyssa Matesic works in editorial at Penguin Random House. You can find her on Twitter @alyssashae_. Though she is now partial to pigeons, she once started a Duck Club that took her fourth grade class by storm.
Ashley Lopez handles rights for Waxman Literary Agency and Diversion Books, and she is an MFA candidate at Sarah Lawrence College. You can find her on relevant social media @a_la_ash. She has little practical experience with pigeons or birds of any persuasion but considers Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird to be life-changing.
Lindsay Comstock is editor of Graphis Journal, a writer, and a photographer. You can find her on Instagram @visualmusings. Though she acknowledges the presence of pigeons on her (almost) daily wanders through Prospect Park, it's the baby swans that capture her heart every spring.
Readers: Sarah Jane Cody, Eunice Pak, Vanessa Stone, and Kelly Tanner,
Interns: Emma Gordon and Hannah Seidlitz.
