Writers discuss the harsh, and many time ridiculous, comments they receive
Say it to my Face: Confronting the CommentsHousing Works Bookstore Cafe (126 Crosby St NY, NY) Map it Free
The first rule of writing on the internet is to expect that someone will respond with a comment that they would NEVER say to your face. The second rule of writing on the internet is to never acknowledge the comment that someone would NEVER say to your face.
But most people who are writing on the internet aren't interested in rules, which is why Tyler Coates and Jolie Kerr invite you to join them, along with some of New York media's finest writers — Mikala Bierma, Jessica Coen, Foster Kamer, Miles Klee, Maris Kreizman, Andrew Krucoff, Tom Ley, Alex Pareene, Erin Gloria Ryan, Beejoli Shah, and Cole Stryker — as they take back the comments section and regale you with some of the meanest, dumbest, most ridiculous online comments that strangers (or friends!) have published about them. SAY IT TO MY FACE will guarantee a few laughs and, hopefully, an abundance of emotional catharses.
