About Qwerty


Qwerty Philly is an online platform whose mission is to connect  Philadelphia’s diverse literary community, through original editorial content, events and professional services. And by literary we mean everybody who works and plays with words; publishers and poets, journalists and novelists, booksellers and bookbinders, librarians and literacy activists, and even the guy who fixes typewriters in a pop-up shop in the Northwest.

Online, Qwerty Philly will provide informative and entertaining editorial content about Philadelphia’s literary community, literary events and literacy change agents. Our social media channels will serve as resources for information, inspiration and literary opportunities in Philadelphia and beyond. Offline, Qwerty Philly will host events and gatherings to unite Philadelphia’s disparate wordsmiths into a thriving and more connected community.

Welcome to Qwerty Philly. Because words matter.
