This coming Wednesday, April 27, please do join us again at Spike Hill in Williamsburg for the second round of Literary Upstart, our annual Search for Pocket Fiction (brought to you by Harper Perennial and the New School).
If last month’s first round is any indication (it usually is), there will be excellent short stories read by a handful of the city’s best unknown writers; disconcertingly loud laughter emanating from certain corners of the audience; rampant use of foul language during New York City Literary Trivia; and drink specials from Heineken. At semifinal #2, we’re promising a thrilling, double-secret beer special that you’ll just have to show up to find out about.
If you’d like to submit your story for consideration for our last semifinal reading, on May 25, please do so by the end of the month, guys. Submission guidelines here.
