The EARSHOT! reading series is dedicated to the work and presence of the most gifted and exciting emerging writers in the greater New York City area. Founded in 2005 by Nicole Steinberg, each EARSHOT! event highlights the literary merits of breakout writers from all genres, and gives graduate writing students the unique opportunity to share their work with an audience beyond the MFA community. EARSHOT! features a diverse range of writers from all levels of achievement mingling freely in a supportive environment.
EARSHOT! currently calls Manhattan’s Lolita Bar home, located at 266 Broome Street. The series is hosted and curated by Peter Bogart Johnson, Jillian Brall, and Gregory Crosby, and sometimes advised/curated by founder, Nicole Steinberg.
