About Kill Genre:

Kill Genre is a quarterly reading series based in New York, NY. The first series of its kind, it showcases groundbreaking works that push the boundaries of form and flirt dangerously with hybridity, integrates musical performance, and includes the audience in innovative ways. Kill Genre is curated by Matthew Daddona, Caroline Hagood, and Matt Petronzio and hosted by Le Poisson Rouge.

Come see the best and most original writers in New York brandish their skills in other genres—from fiction to essays to memoir to more experimental forms—because, when it comes to genre, it’s kill or be killed.
