Description

InspiredWordNYC (creator/producer of the Queens Lit Fest) Presents We Heart NYC Writers Night + Open Mic at Hell Phone, a cozy speakeasy style restaurant/bar with yummy food and drinks and one of the coolest performance spots in in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

This is a celebration of emerging and established New York City writers of all types - poets, novelists, journalists, short story writers. Shows feature carefully selected writers of note, especially those with recently released books/chapbooks or new work on its way to a book/chapbook, as well as a 20-slot poetry/prose open mic (6-minute time limit, for writers of all types and spoken word poets).

NO MUSIC.

Signed books will be available for purchase - a great chance to show local literary love.

Please share this event on social networks with the hashtags #SupportLocalWritersNYC #CelebratingNYCWriters #BuyBooksNYC #BuyLiteraryPubsNYC #SupportEmergingWritersNYC. It's good karma.

A percentage of the proceeds - and 100% of the #SupportLocalWritersNYC DONATIONS - go to the featured writers.
