  • Email address
  • Small low-res jpgs photos (under 300K each)

Please email bert (at) to be considered for the show.  Large files will be deleted.  Please no watermarks on the photos.  Photos must be taken by you.  Open to all ages.  Up to three entries allowed per individual.

Grumpy Bert will contact you via email no later than January 15, 2013 if selected. 

Once selected, you MUST provide a print for the show.  Prints must measure out to 8 1/2 X  11.  We will provide a black frame for your photo.  Photos will be available for sale, details on consignment will be emailed if chosen.

The photos will be shown at Grumpy Bert from January 26 through February 24, 2013.  A reception will be held on January 26 at 8:00-9:30pm in conjunction with the LOST reading.

By submitting, you agree to allow your photo to be publicly displayed at Grumpy Bert and on the internet. Your work maybe used for promotion use and is subject to photo editing at the discretion of Grumpy Bert.


In an open mic style reading, we'll invite writers to read their own works-in-progress or a published piece.  There are no genre style guidelines. All we ask is that it's somewhat related to the theme of LOST. You'll have 5 minutes of star (stage) time. If you are interested in reading, you MUST email in advance to: lynne (at)


The show and reading will be held on the evening of January 26, 2013 at Grumpy Bert 82 Bond St. Brooklyn, NY 11217.
