Backyard is a a quarterly reading series held in Berkeley, CA. We seek to highlight the voices of new and established writers across all genres and disciplines. We have themes, and the themes often have cocktails to go with them. There is always good food, and there are sometimes costumes. We like when things go a little overboard.
At each reading, we hope to host one musical guest, who will play for 10-15 minutes. All genres will be considered, but keep in mind that our set-up is decidedly low tech: we can provide you with a bit of space and an extension cord or two but not much else. For this reason, individuals or duos are likely to be a better fit than larger groups. Please attach one selection of no more than fifteen minutes in mp3 format, or provide a link to a selection online.
