Join us for the launch of the second book in powerHouse Books’ new lit line, Archway Editions, started by booksellers Chris Molnar and Nicodemus Nicoludis. This collection of works read at the Unpublishable Reading Series at POWERHOUSE will be officially launched outdoors in Brooklyn with a simulcast live stream from McGolrick Park featuring many of the writers in the book, and some surprises too! On 10/24 and 10/25 there will be readings from 4pm-6pm.


About the Book.

“Being alive is just microdosing death.”

Collected works from the notorious Brooklyn reading series, from notable and emerging writers alike. 

A famed underground reading series at POWERHOUSE Arena in Brooklyn, organized by Chris Molnar and Etan Nechin, Unpublishable draws hundreds of devotees eager to hear from authors known and unknown as they share their most unusual, unexpected and unpublishable work.

It is a home and meeting place for “writing that excites you, that scares you, things that you delete from your browser history. The piece you can’t submit but can’t stop thinking about either, burning a hole in the bottom of your desk drawer.  Writing from any genre that is uncharacteristic, outré, or offending of sensibilities, that is impossible to place or be published in some fashion.”

Writers from a range of cliques and communities participate, giving striking and unusual performances. Each event includes a chapbook of pieces read, and this anthology collects them together for the first time. Unpublishable has now become Archways, an even more hotly attended reading series which is the lifeblood of this imprint, and the barrier-defying ethos it represents is a critical part of Archway Editions’ DNA.

Contributors include Mary Boo Anderson, Daphne Palasi Andreades, Steve Anwyll, Hratch Arbach, Arash Azizi, James Cañon, Nifath Karim Chowdhury, Jessica Denzer, Naomi Falk, John Farris, Jameson Fitzpatrick, Caitlin Forst, Jean Kyoung Frazier, Chris Gonzalez, Evan Gorzeman, Mina Hamedi, Brent Kite, Jason Koo, Noah LeBien, Anya Lewis-Meeks, Chris Molnar, Etan Nechin, Nicodemus Nicoludis, Kate Olsson, Erin Taylor, and Joanna C. Valente.
