Thanks for making Line Break #8 flat-out amazing


Bottomless thanks to everyone who turned out for our eighth regular episode of Line Break this past Saturday, at beautiful Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. Just by showing up and giving us the gift of your attention, you helped make the afternoon bigger and better than it would have been without you.

Thanks as always to Q.E.D. for giving us the space and an opportunity to use it. And thanks especially to our amazing readers, who really made it an incredible show. Vanessa Golenia related adventures in Mexican cosmetic surgery, Daniel Braum took us on a harrowing adventure with some unusual characters, Sarah Riccio shared the hilarious and heartbreaking story of a temporary Russian mail-order mom, and David Mills slammed it home with his playful and provocative poetry. Check out his poem "Unarmed," which we were fortunate enough to hear live:

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for Saturday, July 1st, when we'll we back with our ninth issue, featuring filmmaker William Cusick, writer Joshua McCuen, and more.

So sign up for our mailing list and keep abreast of all the latest developments in the Line Break world. And finally, if you're interested in participating in a future Line Break, do send us a submission.

We look forward to seeing you again in June! Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There is something amazing happening there literally every day.
