What the headline says, basically: join us two Monday evenings from now at the Slipper Room for the second semifinal reading of our Literary Upstart: The Search for Pocket Fiction competition (brought to you as ever by the decent folk at Harper Perennial and the New School).

If you’re anything like us, you’ve read the reports, and gazed upon the photographic evidence, of this year’s first Upstart event, and thought to yourself, “wow, that sure seems like fun.” So. Monday, May 17th, doors at 7pm; cheap booze, short fiction, witty critiques from our judging panel, drunken trivia competitions, giveaways, and a general sense, when all is said and done, that you’ve really been A Part of Something.

And, hey: with the last of our three semifinal readings coming up on June 9th, you should probably be aware that the deadline for Upstart submissions is Monday, May 31. So get on with it.
