A Sunday evening traditon among writers in New York,
ZBRS was founded in 1993 by Joe Elliot
& has since been hosted by Douglas Rothschild, Brendan Lorber,
Marcella Durand, Anselm Berrigan, among others

Originally at the legendary Biblio's in Tribeca,
it moved to Zinc on Houston Street in 1995 & again
in 2007 to its current righteous location.

Over the course of it's 600+ readings to date, ZBRS has welcomed poets from five continents
and has paired established & emerging writers from many different traditions ranging from the
extremely experimental to the unadulterated lyric to the immensely performative.

Meek, perky, inscrutable & outrageous, ZBRS seeks to connect the impossible with the irresolvable
& leave everyone more open to the world around them then they were when they entered the place.

$5 donation goes to the poets.
If you don't have it, don't worry, come anyway

Take a look at 2003-2004 or the 2004-2005 or even the 2005-2006 seasons. Oh and here's 2010 and 2011
