The Prose Bowl
Feb 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
Four writers come in, one writer leaves—or all of them do. But somebody gets a prize.
The Prose Bowl is a lighthearted open-mic showdown between writers of fiction. Take the stage, do a five minute reading, and our panel of judges will discuss your work and decide on the finalists. From there, read your best micro-story of a few sentences or less in our Lightning Round, and the audience will decide our champion! Think of it as the writer’s American Idol (Simon Cowell sold separately).
But the competition is only half of our goal. We’re also hoping to provide a platform for emerging writers in New York, and win or lose, this is your chance to have your work heard and engaged with before an enthusiastic (if, perhaps, slightly drunken) crowd. There are no editors here to query, no submissions, no rejections. Just a community of New York writers putting names in a hat. Come read, or come listen, and either way, tell all your friends!
