Quoting/paraphrasing the email I just sent to the NYU Creative Writing Program alumni list: a short-short story of mine, titled “Intermediaries,” will be performed this Wednesday at the “Courage & Cowardice” installment of the great Liars’ League NYC reading series. Here are some basic facts about the reading, presented in a handy Q&A format.
WHAT DAY IS THE READING? Wednesday, October 3.
WHAT TIME? The reading is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE DOES LIARS’ LEAGUE NYC MAKE ITS HOME? KGB Bar.
HOW LONG IS YOUR STORY? 865 words, give or take.
DOES YOUR STORY INVOLVE HALLOWEEN ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE IN THE EARLY AUGHTS, AS WELL AS THE BAR MARION’S, WHICH DOESN’T EXIST ANYMORE? Yes.
WHO WILL BE READING YOUR STORY? I’m not sure, but the other writers are Rudy Koshar, Cynthia Blank, and Ellen Weeren; and the actors reading the stories are Olivia Killingsworth, Alex C. Ferrill, Ari Brand, and Kira Davies.
DOES IT BENEFIT A CAUSE? Quoting Facebook: the reading is part of READING FOR RAICES, “a fundraising collaboration to raise money for the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, a nonprofit that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.”
SO THERE’S MORE INFO ON FACEBOOK, IF I’M INTO THAT SORT OF THING? Yes.
WILL YOU BE THERE, TOM? No, I live in Ohio now. But I’d be so thrilled if any fellow NYU CWP alums were able to attend!
