The City of Light shines in the Grey City
PLU was honored to share the stage with the featured readers Alistair Noon, Rosie Allabarton and Nisha Bhakooand this week for the monthly Open Mic, Isn’t Everything Poetry?, held at Curious Fox Books. A great evening of poetry and music in Berlin’s cultural Neukölln district! Plus, Paris Lit Up Press’ publications are now officially stocked at Curious Fox Books for all our Berliner readers: Wir sind Berliners!
Danke to our featured performers, special guests, hosts and everyone who made our night memorable.
We’re excited to be presenting the second issue of Paris Lit Up magazine with our Berlin contributors and guests, courteously hosted by the Isn’t Everything Poetry? reading series regularly held at Curious Fox Books.

Poetry, short-stories, flash fiction, photography, artwork, interviews and even comic books: Paris Lit Up Magazine n°2 has something for every connoisseur of contemporary writing.
