The Prose Bowl
Oct 20, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm| Free
Four writers come in, one writers leaves—or all of them do. But somebody gets a free drink.
The Prose Bowl is a lighthearted open-mic showdown between writers of fiction. Show up, do a five minute reading (we recommend 900-1000 words, but practice to be sure!), and our panel of judges will discuss your work and, with the help of our audience, decide on a winner. Think of it as the artist’s American Idol (Simon Cowell sold separately).
But the competition is only half of our goal. We’re also hoping to provide a venue for emerging writers in New York, and win or lose, this is your chance to have your work heard and even debated before an enthusiastic (if, perhaps, slightly drunken) crowd. Come read, or come listen, and either way, tell all your friends!
