Above the Bridge is now accepting submissions for our October, returning to an old theme that’s oh-so-appropriate for fall, “Turning Over a New Leaf.” Writers Cafe is Monday, October 29; submissions due Sunday, October 21.
Above the Bridge is a playground for writers. It is a place to encourage and cultivate neighborhood writers and provide them with an audience for their work.
Here’s How It Works:
A theme is chosen for each month. Writers may submit five minutes of material of any genre or style (poetry, plays, fiction, non-fiction, blogs, etc.) that reflect the month’s theme.
Concussion Comedy is a monthly stand-up comedy show with no cover charge and a complimentary CT scan. The city’s hottest comedians come to Washington Heights every third Thursday delivering punchlines that may result in a loss of consciousness. Thursday October 18th, come see this knockout lineup:
Corinne Fisher (The Comedy Store, Just for Laughs Comedy Festival)
Vanetta Schoefield (Harlem Comedy Festival)
Stephen Sihelnik (Stand Up NY)
Nick Carra (5th Borough Comedy Festival)
Caitlin McKee (She Makes Me Laugh Festival)
Mark Benjamin (The Stand, NY French Comedy Festival)
Hosted by local concussion aficionado, Ed McGowan.
