  3. Accessibility

    Wendy's Subway strives to be accessible to all visitors. We are located on the ground floor at 379 Bushwick Avenue. At the entrance, there is a concrete ramp with some uneven surfaces and a raised threshold (measuring 2 1/4” in height). Our single, all-gender bathroom is not currently ADA-accessible; however, there are several such bathrooms nearby that we would be happy to help direct to. This space is not scent-free, but we ask that attendees come fragrance-free.

    Events will be live-streamed and archived for future consultation. 

    If you have specific questions about access, please write info@wendyssubway.com at least three days before the event and we will make every effort to provide accommodations for you.

  4. Fellowship

    Wendy’s Subway is currently reviewing applications for Fall 2020 Fellows.

    Fellows take on an active role in a variety of areas, including developing public programs, research and editorial work, community engagement and education, marketing and publicity, grant writing, graphic design, and archiving, library maintenance and cataloging.

    Fellows are expected to work 1-2/days per week for a six-month period (subject to renewal) throughout the year, and 3-month period throughout the summer, and attend biweekly staff meetings. Some evening events may be required. Fellows will receive a modest, daily stipend, and students may earn university credit. Fellows are also eligible for yearlong free membership to Wendy’s Subway and benefit from free workshop and course registration. Finally, Fellows have the opportunity to participate in a special publication series reflecting their research, creative practices, and experiences during the Fellowship.

    Applicants should have an interest in poetry, art, and interdisciplinary practice. Applicants with a background in library science, archiving, and handling printed matter are especially welcome to apply. Recent graduates or current students are invited to apply.

    Apply here: info@wendyssubway.com with your CV and a brief cover letter describing your motivations and field of interest.
