Literary Happy Hour is a curated reading and performance series providing a platform for diverse New Haven writers to present work, build a local following, and form a supportive,collaborative writing community. The monthly event, held every second Friday from 6-8pm, unites the strongest writers from disconnected corners of our community－from creative writing students to independent writers, slam poets, journalists, rappers, and stand-up comedians－with an emphasis on recognizing writers of color and other writers belonging to marginalized groups. Launched in November 2015, Literary Happy Hour has attracted a significant following, with an average of 60+ attendees RSVP’ed to each event.
Made possible by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven Community Engagement Grant.
