About Debut Lit:
Debut Lit is a national arts event series dedicated to helping new writers gain a wider audience. Debut Lit's launch events celebrate the release of new literary works by first time authors with a party, reading, and book signing, and incorporate visual art, music, or film. Debut Lit's Flashers series consists of raucous evenings with multiple writers reading two-page complete stories inspired by a provocative phrase or quote. Debut Lit believes that new work deserves a new idea, and literature can come alive in ways it never has before.
