Thanks to our writers and everyone who attended our last reading. We’ll be on hiatus for July and August and back for the new season in September!

Our next reading will take place on Thursday, September 11th at the Astoria Bookshop – our official new location, which we are very excited about. Readings will now run the second Thursday of every month from 7-8:30pm.

We are currently accepting submissions for the fall and winter. There are no themed months for the upcoming season – just send us your best work! Read more about submissions here.

REMINDER: Boundless Tales is proud to feature three talented poets at the NYC Poetry Festival on Saturday, July 26th at 11:10am on the White Horse Stage. Co-host of Boundless Tales, Devin Doyle will be representing our series this year and introducing writers Sarah Bonifacio, M. Leona Godin and Joe Yoga to the stage.

Lastly, Newtown Literary Journal is reading submissions for their next issue, which has a special theme of “Speculative Poetry and Prose,” and is being guest edited by Katey Garrigan, their production editor.

We hope to hear from you soon!

None other than our kickass founder, Aida, served as host with the most at our last reading at Astoria Bookshop. We had a packed house – thanks to all our readers and everyone who shared the night with us!

Have NO regrets about missing our LAST reading of the season and come out to Astoria Bookshop on June 19, 7pm!

If you hadn’t noticed, the theme is “REGRETS” and features:

Jared Harel
Richard Jeffrey Newman
Michael Stahl
Matthew Thorburn
Vaughn M. Watson

Find out more about them, and check the Facebook invite.

It’s been a wonderful journey for all of us here at Boundless. Audrey will be hosting the last reading (and is super excited because it’s where HER Queens lit journey really began).

See you all out there! Thanks again to the Astoria Bookshop for becoming an amazing new home for our series. Having strong partnerships with local venues and their owners is of UTMOST importance – we need to keep supporting those venues who are supportive of us, too.
