Welcome to our spring season. Join us for this month’s edition of Pegasus Reading Series. This month we feature Alexandra Corinth, Callie Gill, Allyson Jones, and Sara Ryan.
About us: Pegasus Reading Series was founded and curated by the poets Robert Torres and Sebastian Paramo in 2014. When Torres left in 2015, Courtney Marie joined Sebastian to host & curate the series. In 2016, both poets joined forces to organize and curate Deep Ellum Lit Hop. In 2018, Ashley Mag Gabbertt joined to co-host.
The mission of Pegasus Reading Series is to bridge together literary communities and writers in Dallas and across the nation.
