The Renegade Reading Series

The Renegade Reading Series was established in 2011 and showcases emerging writers each month at Mayday in Bushwick. To hear about upcoming events, subscribe to our mailing list or check out our Facebook page. You can also follow us on Twitter @RenegadeReading.


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), a headshot, 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.
