"Here's a toast to #YeahYouWrite—one of the most welcoming and ingenious literary reading series I've ever enjoyed. Don't miss it!" —Terry Blackhawk, poet and founder of InsideOut Literary Arts Project

"In a packed basement at Bo’s Restaurant, the paradigm of the traditional literary reading is being revamped. Now you can watch as the author stands on stage sampling a specially mixed drink, answering rapid fire questions about writing practice, telling an anecdote about a bad review, and, oh yes, reading a few pages. This is the wave of the future." Said Sayrafiezadeh, author, When Skateboards Will Be Free

"Thank you for the excellent time last night. Dinner was superb; my Watch Me Drink This drink was delicious; everyone was so darned NICE! Truly, one of the best lit events I've attended in a long time." Mark Wisniewski, author of Watch Me Go

" I think this might just be the coolest event I've ever been a part of!" Imani Sims, poet, performance artist, & impresario.

"I have to say, you do a very nice job and deserve praise and thanks. ...These sorts of readings are a meaningful part of the fabric of literary life in New York City, especially when given some care like you have." Austin Ratner, author of The Jump Artist and In the Land of the Living
