Event Details

 Writer's Bloq is an online, invite-only community for Undergraduate and Graduate writers--the teachers, alumni, and current students of recognized writing programs around the country. We're having our launch event, Unsolicited: An MFA Mingle on May 3!

The event, at Strand Bookstore, is going to be a reading for the top seven writers on the Bloq, as decided by the registered community. By attending Unsolicited, you will hear work by the top new writers in the city, meet and mingle with fresh literary talent, and help bridge the gap between the worlds of online and paper publishing by bringing together people who usually work in solitude.


How will we accomplish this? 

In soon-to-be-traditional Unsolicited fashion: invited readers will be...
the writers of the top rated pieces on Writer's Bloq.   
 
Why buy tickets?
- To attend a vibrant reading by highly talented writers
- To be automatically entered into a raffle to win a stay at the Library Hotel Manhattan, our wonderful sponsor. (In case you don't know, they have themed literary rooms)!
- To enjoy some delicious drinks of liquid courage at the bar.
- Argo Tea is providing tea tasting for all those who enjoy tea time!
- To mingle with representatives from publishing houses, agencies, literary magazines and institutions!

 And on our wonderful venue...

"At the turn of the last century, there were 48 bookstores located on “Book Row”, stretching between Union Square and Astor Place. Today, the Strand Bookstore is the only one remaining, and for good reason! It’s a wonderful place if you are looking for that rare book, or maybe just a cheap read. They also buy used books which is great when you revamping your library." - NYC Posers
