Deadline for Submissions to October Above the Bridge Writers’ Café: “Turning Over a New Leaf”

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.
