powerHouse helps celebrate the "Mistake & Regrets" issue of a local favorite literary magazine.
About the event:
Slice Literary is celebrating its 11th issue at powerHouse Arena. Contributors from the local lit scene will read their work. Each piece is a brilliant interpretation of this issue's theme, Mistakes & Regrets. Slice is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization that aims to bridge the gap between emerging writers and the professional publishing world. In each issue, we publish new work by rising stars alongside interviews with some of today's literary greats.
