Call for Queens, NY Writers!
We're looking for a few Queens writers for a reading at Socrates Sculpture Park this summer. The event will be called “Literary Geographies: A Celebration of Queens Writers” and will be held on the afternoon/evening of July 11, 2015. We're seeking submissions from Queens-based writers who represent the diversity of Queens, to read their fiction or nonfiction about place, be it Queens or elsewhere. We'll even give you a small stipend for reading!
To submit, please include a short paragraph or two about your area of Queens and how you contribute to the diverse population of the borough and a 5-8 page writing sample, double-spaced, to:
litgeographiesATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
The writing sample should be whatever you plan on reading aloud (fiction or nonfiction) and should also have a focus on place. You must be available on July 11th and able to travel to the sculpture park, located in Long Island City (easily accessible using the N/Q subway!)
We'll be reading until we fill the available slots so submit early!
