JAZZ WaHi Vocal Series Featuring Elisabeth Lohninger at Le Cheile

All shows at 8:00.  $10 advance, $15 day of show (cash only), $5 minimum (cards accepted for food and drink).

Submissions Due for December Above the Bridge: “Sharing Our Gifts”

Thanks to everyone who attended our 10-year anniversary celebration on Sunday.  It was a great time and a wonderful way to kick us off to our next decade! Anthologies are still available!  If you would like one, send us an email and we can arrange pick-up.  They’re only $10 and a true reflection of our wonderful neighborhood.

We are now accepting submissions for our December Writers Cafe. The theme for the month is “Sharing Our Gifts.”  Come kick off the holiday season with us and send us your gifts of words!

Writers Cafe is Monday, December 9; please submit by Monday, December 2. We look forward to reading you soon!

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 (FIVE, PLEASE!) of material of any genre or style (poetry, plays, fiction, non-fiction, blogs, etc.) that reflect the month’s theme.

Pieces will be chosen by the Above the Bridge selection team to be read by the author at the next reading series. There will be a short rehearsal prior to the event.

Requirements for Writers:
Writers must live in Washington Heights or Inwood. Please attach your name, address and phone number with your submission. Pieces should be no longer than 5 minutes, but all work will be considered. You do not have to be a professional writer. New and existing works accepted.

Send all submissions or inquiries to: abovethebridge@gmail.com

Please write the theme/month for which you are submitting in the subject line. Also, please make sure that your name is also attached to your piece. We’re just looking out for you and your precious work!
