Wendy’s Subway, a non-profit reading room, writing space, and independent publisher located in the Bushwick neighborhood of New York City has provided a versatile platform for expanding modes of reading, writing, and publishing since its inception in 2013. Dedicated to encouraging creative, critical, and discursive engagement with arts and literature, and committed to the belief that equitable access to reading and collaborative forms of knowledge-production are catalysts for social transformation, it offers free readings, talks, residencies, performances, writing workshops and more. In its programmatic initiatives, it strives to support emerging and underrepresented writers and artists, particularly those who are BIPOC, LGBTQ, disabled, and neurodivergent, whose work builds community with diverse audiences. Programs take place with partnering institutions or in the Bushwick storefront, home to a non-circulating library of over 3,000 titles, with a specific focus on independent and small press publishing in art, literature, and critical theory.
