BOUNDLESS TALES IS NOW A PART OF NEWTOWN LITERARY. Read more here.
Founded in 2011, Boundless Tales Reading Series is the longest-running reading series in the borough of Queens, NYC! Readings run the second Thursday of every month from 7-8:30pm. Four readers will be featured for the evening. The goal of this series is to provide a venue for writers who are passionate about their writing, and who would like to share their work in a public forum. We’re interested in daring, funny, poignant, weird, perceptive, unique work.
Boundless Tales Reading Series is curated by:
Aida Zilelian is a NYC writer whose stories have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies such as Wilderness House Literary Review, The Writer’s Block, Ararat Magazine, and Theurgy (UK). In 2011 her first novel THE HOLLOWING MOON was one of the four semi-finalists of the Anderbo Novel Contest. In 2014 she was the recipient of the Tololyan Literary Award for the sequel, THE LEGACY OF LOST THINGS, which was published by Bleeding Heart Publications in 2015. www.aidazilelian.com
