Rolling Writers – Rolling In The Aisles

May 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0


Guidelines. This is a night for literary humor, not stand-up comedy. To be considered, send sharp, funny, insightful humor, broad or subtle, that would work well before a live audience. Political humor is discouraged—we get way more than enough of that these days, and most of it is lazy, obvious, and witless. Featured readers will get up to eight minutes at the mic (about 1,200 words). Funny stories, essays, memoirs, and poetry will be eagerly considered, and we’d love love to feature funny original songs and performances of public-domain songs or theatrical pieces. Paste your material, or performance proposal, into the body of an email with the subject line RW Humor: [Your Name] addressed to the host, Jon Sindell, at jsind@sbcglobal.net. You must submit personally—no submissions by representatives will be considered.


“Dying is easy; comedy’s hard.” ~ attributed to many (naturally enough, for comedy is hard, and comedians steal).


About Rolling Writers

Like the baker Rageneau in Cyrano, master baker Bruno Tsé supports the arts. And our pastry-preparing patron of poetry and prose shows love for the muse by giving his Taraval Street café up for lit readings, with themed musical and gustatory accoutrements.

Rolling–Out: 1722 Taraval, between 27th and 28th Avenues,

San Francisco. The L-Taraval streetcar line stops at 26th Avenue.

To submit work for an upcoming theme, please write the host, Jon Sindell, at jsind [at] sbcglobal [net], pasting your work into the body of the email, and marking the subject line as follows: RW [Name Of Show], [Writer’s Name]. You must submit personally—no submissions by representatives will be considered. Unless otherwise indicated on the Upcoming Events page, limit prose submissions to 1,200 words; shorter submissions are preferred. This series primarily features complete works of fiction and memoir, but poetry and reasonably self-contained novel excerpts are presented to a limited extent. Submissions are rolling—we generally consider submissions until a lineup is filled.

Won’t you join us?
