Wendy’s Subway is a non-profit library and writing space located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We imagine an open, versatile space where cultural production flourishes through reading, research, and collaborative practice, and manifests in performance, publication, and education. WS hosts a range of public programs, including interdisciplinary readings and screenings, talks and lectures, discussion and reading groups, writing workshops, and free courses. Its non-circulating library holds a collection of books and documents with a special focus on poetry, art, theory, and philosophy, as well as the Laurin Raiken Archive, an extensive resource for the study of art history and criticism. WS is operated by its membership of 30+ poets, curators, novelists, artists, and critics with an interest in hybrid forms and cross-disciplinary discourse.
