The Renegade Reading Series

The Renegade Reading Series was established in 2011 and showcases emerging writers on the third Wednesday of every month from 7:30-9:30pm at Mayday in Bushwick. The readings are from 8-9 and we mingle, network, flirt, and drink from 7:30-8 and 9-9:30.


If you are interested in submitting your work for a future event, please email renegadereading [at] gmail [dot] com with a writing sample (it doesn’t have to be what you wish to read at the series, but it should be similar) and a short bio and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. All emerging poets, fiction writers, and essayists are welcome to submit and we especially encourage women, POC, LGBTQ+, and people with disabilities to submit. Our main aim is to bring new and diverse voices with immense talent to the stage.
