NO PERCH is a reading series that places writers into new and unlikely spaces. Attempts to pick venues seemingly hostile to our readers will always inevitably be discovered to be ideal interstices. Addition can change what we know into what we don’t. We document the products of these summations (including videos of all past readers) on our website for posterity, but warn posterity that these records distort what they catalog.
