Freshman Class

  • Bowery Poetry Club 308 Bowery New York, NY 10012 USA (map)

“New York's great storytellers have a lot in common with the city's anthology of superheroes—one-in-a-million rare, celebrated in perpetuum, and usually the product of character-defining experiences that they endured and ultimately came out on top of. The same guy could become Batman, Norman Mailer, or Jay-Z. You might as well be somebody.”

Deriving their name from hip hop mag XXL's annual new talent issue, the Freshman Class crew is a motley array of young artists—solo performers, rappers, playwrights, essayists—united by uniquely New York coming-of-age experiences and a knack for long-form storytelling. F.C. writers’ work has appeared everywhere from independent presses and The Paris Review to Park Avenue Armory and Ars Nova.

Hosted by David Potters, featuring David Acosta, Leo Arias, Toniann Fernandez, Liv Mendez, Schuyler Quinn, and Ren Santiago, with musical guest Jenie.
