New York City Reading Series Census

The New York City Reading Series Census is a project to identify, publicize, and create a record of literary reading series in New York City. The goal is to help connect the literary community and provide a resource for writers, readers, and fans of events in the city.

We are hoping to collect answers from the curators of the city’s reading series and publish them as a resource for participants and audience members, as well as create a portrait of the contemporary literary scene in New York City.

See the responses from other series here.
