Abridged Is Born

We’re thrilled to announce our new semi-regular reading series ABRIDGED.

As Bridge Eight is determined to expand the Jacksonville literary universe, with ABRIDGED, it is our goal to capture moments in that expansion with readings of new fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.


For our very first event, we’re excited to have poet Tiffany Steward Melanson, fiction writer and poet Melanie Manuel Webb, and fiction writer Coe Douglas read new work.

Support literature and join us at Deep Search Records on July 23rd at 7:00 pm.

ABRIDGED is brought to you in collaboration with our friends at Left On Mallory.
