Welcome to The Plum Plum, a New Literary E-zine

We are two Philadelphia-based writers/ warriors who believe in the accessibility of the visual, written, and spoken word. This blog is our project to create a space where writing and photography speak to/ shout at/ provoke one another and all passersby on the world wide web. We believe in the efficiency of language, the power of the image.

What describes the essence of a thing better than the actual thing? Our nerdy inspiration for the blog title comes from a quote from the movie “The English Patient,” based on Michael Ondaatje’s novel. Katharine Clifton says to Count Almasy: “I wanted to meet a man who could write such a long paper with so few adjectives,” to which he responds: “Well, a thing is still a thing no matter what you put in front of it.”

Later on, as a dying patient in bed, he says while being fed a plum: “It’s a very…plum plum.”

How could we not fall in love with this concision? As they say, an image is worth a thousand words. We love plums because they are just so plum.
