Words at the Wise is starting the search for Season 5! If you are interested in coming out to read, please get in touch with a sample of your work at email@example.com. If you want to get a better idea of my sensibilities, you can see samples of my own work on the home page of Versus the Neanderthals.
I am strictly looking for fiction for these nights. I feel that poetry tends to dominate the reading landscape, and I’m looking to get away from that. In terms of preferences, I tend towards surrealism, magic realism and humour, with a preference for shorter works. One of the advantages of poetry is its brevity. Longer stories need to be really compelling.
There is a space for featured authors to sell books and chapbooks of their work.
Come out May 7th and again in the fall!
