New York Office Hours writers meet-up set for Sept. 22
All approved B/R writers are welcome to drop in and meet me, each other and some other Bleacher Report people. We’ll also welcome author, longtime New York Times sports columnist and frequent Bleacher Report Guest Columnist Robert Lipsyte as our guest.
If you’ve read Lipsyte’s new book, “An Accidental Sportswriter,” you know he’s got plenty to say about the sportswriting game.
Our idea for these Office Hours events is to keep them pretty informal, so Lipsyte won’t be giving a speech or anything, but it’ll be a great chance for you to meet a very accomplished, very interesting and very nice guy of a writer.
A group Q&A session was a highlight of our first Office Hours in San Francisco, so we’ll invite Bob to take some questions this time.
I lobbied for Rio de Janeiro as the location for our next meet-up, but I’m pretty excited about coming to New York and meeting more of Bleacher Report’s writer community.
We’re still nailing down an exact time and location, so watch this space for details.
Update: We’ll meet at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Union Square, 116 E. 16th St. between Park Avenue South and Irving Place, from 6 to 9 p.m.
