Submissions Due for February Above the Bridge Writers’ Café: “Love/Sex/Passion”

There will be no Writers Cafe in January, but we look forward to seeing you all in February for one of our very favorite themes, Love/Sex/Passion. Writers Cafe is Monday, February 11; please submit by Sunday, February 1. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and the happiest of new years.  We look forward to seeing you in 2019.

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!
