We had the launch party for our first edition of the magazine on August 17th at the Market at Liberty Place. It was a great combination of poems, stories, art, and ice cream!

Here's what the members of the writing group wrote about Patchwork:

If you enjoy words and stories and art, we hope you'll join us!
