With the Slipper Room under renovation, The L’s Literary Upstart: The Search for Pocket Fiction competition (brought to you b Harper Perennial and the New School) is, like a recent graduate, moving across the East River to Brooklyn for our last semifinal reading in June, and our hotly contested final in July.

Join us, won’t you, at Williamsburg’s Spike Hill—just roll off the Bedford Ave L stop and there you are—on Thursday, June 10, and Thursday, July 8, starting at 7pm both nights. Yes, there’ll still be dollar beer, rowdy trivia, bite-sized lit-criticism and wonderful short fiction from our city’s best unknown writers. Except in Brooklyn, which is arguably where it should have been all along.
