This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.
Join Natalie Eilbert (Swan Feast), Melissa Faliveno (Poets & Writers), and Lincoln Michel (Electric Literature) for The Hustle, a discussion series about the business of writing: how writers pay the bills, how they get the work done, what they read, and more.
Natalie Eilbert is the author of the poetry collection Swan Feast, as well as two chapbooks, Conversation with the Stone Wife and And I Shall Again Be Virtuous. Her poems and essays have appeared in or are forthcoming in The New Yorker, Tin House, The Kenyon Review, The Offing, and many others. She is the founding editor of The Atlas Review.
Melissa Faliveno is the associate editor of Poets & Writers Magazine. She is also an essayist, freelance journalist, and book reviewer; has worked in various editorial capacities for a major fiction publisher, an independent nonfiction press, and several literary magazines; and has taught creative writing to adults, high school students, and incarcerated people in and around New York City. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in DIAGRAM, Isthmus, Lumina, the Green Mountains Review, Martin Magazine, Midwestern Gothic, and Poets & Writers Magazine, among other publications.
Lincoln Michel is the online editor of Electric Literature and the co-editor of Gigantic. His writing appears in Tin House, VICE, NOON, Buzzfeed, The Believer, and elsewhere.

Poetry. "Natalie Eilbert's powerful first book is a twenty-first century hymn to the Venus of Wilendorf, a 30,000- year-old figurine whose ample body is a protest against all that seeks to diminish us.
