It’s May, which means one of our very favorite themes, “Mothers and Fathers: Sharing Our Stories.” Join us this Monday for a Writers Cafe featuring the work of: Scott Chasolen, Rebecca Dee, Sheila Kehoe, Varese Layzer, Rebecca Mason, Rosa Naparstek, Corinne O’Shaughnessy, Sandra Stein . We hope to see you there! Seating is limited.
***If you plan on eating during the event, please make sure that you arrive in time for the food to be brought to you before 8pm. We will not open the door while someone is reading because it can be disruptive, and we don’t want your food to get cold. Thank you!***
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
