Read650's mission is to promote writers through live performances that celebrate the spoken word. It's a popular literary series that captivates audiences with true personal stories—five minutes and 650 words at a time. With a strong emphasis on the craft of writing, Read650's submission-based events are developed around broad themes that invite a wide range of expression. In a publishing environment with a shrinking number of opportunities to showcase new voices, Read650 is a high-quality platform for both aspiring and established writers.

"Summer Jobs"

A dozen talented writers recount memories of their most memorable summer jobs — positions involving physical labor, low pay, embarrassing costumes, kids, animals, and more. Come hear—and then meet—our burger flippers, dog walkers, camp counselors, pool skimmers, pizza drivers, and lawn mowers.

Venue: City Winery
