What is the name of the series, and what is the significance or meaning of the series name?
The series is called Same Page after the colloquialism “We’re on the same page,” both because it indicates the ethos of the series is for like-minded people who are exciting about all forms of the written word, and because the two founders had the idea for it at the same time.

Pigeon Pages

What is the name of the series, and what is the significance or meaning of the series name?
Our series is called Pigeon Pages. We like pigeons—they’re city birds, and while they are much maligned, they have really beautiful feather patterns and every pigeon is unique. Pigeons have a really fascinating history as well—a pigeon won a medal of honor in World War I. The Queen of England is famously a pigeon fancier and keeps pigeons. We think pigeons are cool. And we enjoyed the alliteration of “pages”, and how it suggests writing and reading.

What is the name of the series, and what is the significance or meaning of the series name?
The name of our series is Line Break. In prose writing, a line break indicates the start of a new scene. We chose that name for our series in hopes that it would be the start of a new little literary scene, and to evoke that idea that every episode could be the start of a new thought for our audience.
