Affinity CoLab

The main goal of Affinity CoLab is to inspire, connect, and create a space for artists and writers to share their work. We let the work speak for itself. This is the place to play. To do. To create. Please join us.

New Issue Coming Soon!

About Us

We believe in the creative process. Every submission we receive is either accepted as is or goes through to editing where our editor and the writer/artist work together to polish for publication. Our goal is to provide a stepping stone in publication, to give new writers confidence and experience in the editing, submitting, and publishing process.

Get Involved


Every three months Affinity CoLab announces a theme and a call for submissions in response to that theme. Submissions are free and must follow specific guidelines. Please check our Submissions page for requirements.


On the fourth Sunday of every month, Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA hosts Affinity CoLab’s Story Slam/Poetry Jam where local writers can share their work in a supportive open mic setting. NOTE: This is a virtual event for now. Click the Our Events button below for more information and to register for the Zoom!

Youth Series

Our youth series has a monthly prompt for young writers. All ages under 18 are welcome to respond and submit their work to our magazine. All submissions will be published in a special issue at the end of the year.
