Indicia Lit & LSPMAG at Stories Books & Cafe

LSPMAG and Indicia Lit had a stellar turnout for our amazing artists at our first reading event held at Stories Books & Cafe. The rain didn’t keep the poets and writers away, and made it a nice moody atmosphere for the audience to enjoy.

Our readers included Alina Nguyen, Alexis Rhone Fancher, Laryssa Wirstiuk, Laura Picklesimer, John C. Nelson, Joseph Hernandez, and Natasha Archer.
