Read 650: A Writer's Art
Tuesday, June 19
The hit reading series Read 650 comes to The National Arts Club. Read 650 captivates audiences with live performances that celebrate the spoken word. It’s a literary forum for personal stories—two pages, five minutes, and 650 words long.
Read 650's curated, submission-based events place a strong emphasis on the craft of writing and feature graduate students and grandparents, first-timers and bestsellers. In a publishing environment with a shrinking number of opportunities to showcase a writer's art, Read 650 is a high-quality platform with staged events throughout New York City and the TriState area for aspiring and established writers alike. It's about the art of writing—and telling—true stories.
There has been much praise for Read 650. Agnes of God playwright and screenwriter John Pielmeier writes, "Read 650 is one of the most evocative, entertaining, and moving experiences I’ve had the privilege to attend—or participate in.”
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. A RESERVATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
