September Above the Bridge Writers’ Café, “Hit the Ground Running”

It’s just about fall, so how about you join us as we “Hit the Ground Running?” Our Writers Cafe on this theme features the work of: David Breitkopf, Joey Brenneman, Joan Greenbaum, Corinne O’Shaughnessy, Marcy Tropin.

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!
