Dedicated to amplifying fresh voices in literature, we want to give writers at all stages of their career time in the spotlight. We are hosting an Emerging Writers Showcase at AmpLit Fest from 12:45 - 1:45 pm on June 10th. 


Like our flagship Emerging Writers Series, this showcase aims to present a diverse set of readings that demonstrates the quality and variety of New York's literary community. We're seeking a mix of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, and all that's in between. 

If you would like to read at the Emerging Writers Showcase please submit a brief bio and no more than 6 pages of your own work. You must submit by 9 pm on Sunday, May 7th

Prose submissions must be double-spaced, and all submissions must be twelve-point font. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages in length. We ask that writers only submit one entry. Chosen readers each have eight(ish) minutes to present their work.
