Three outstanding New York writers, Janie Heath, Maggie Dubris and Tom Cole, will convene to share recent works including fiction, drama and much more. Join us for a literary extravaganza that promises to run the gamut of New York writing and experience.


Texas-born, New York City-dwelling Janie Heath has work cutting across the newspaper, film, and music industries, with work featured in Big Bridge, Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, and Brink. Currently at work on a novel, a recent essay of hers will appear in the liner notes for the hotly-anticipated Domino Records box set, G Stands for Go-Betweens Volume II.


Maggie Dubris is the author of In The Dust Zone (Centre-Ville books, 2010), Skels (Soft Skull Press, 2004) and Weep Not, My Wanton (Black Sparrow Press, 2002). Her latest book, BrokeDown Palace, will be coming out from SubPress in 2019. She is a songwriter who co-founded the all-female extravaganza Homer Erotic with the late Barbara Barg (Homerica the Beautiful, Depth of Field records 1999). Maggie has also been working as a soundscape artist on installations with the visual artist Linda Byrne, and video artist Sang-ah Choi. She worked as a 911 paramedic for 25 years, and currently works as a set medic for the TV show Law and Order: SVU.


Nationally-acclaimed Lower East Side-based playwright, dramaturge and director Tom Cole has received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and Edward Albee Foundation, with work presented at Participant, Dixon Place, ICA Boston and Threadwaxing Space among many others. Head of the New Play Commissioning Program at True Love Productions and curator of the “Experiments and Disorders” literary series at Dixon Place (where he is also a member of the board), Tom co-directed HOPELESSNESS with Anohni (aka Antony and the Johnsons) at the Park Avenue Armory, touring Europe including the Barbican in London and Edinburgh International Festival. He also produced Antony and the Johnson’s TURNING at St. Ann’s Warehouse in 2003 and 2000-2002 directed the Market Theater in Cambridge presenting new work by Antony and the Johnsons, Ping Chong, David Mamet, Ricky Jay, Kate Robin and others.
