Oh, Bernice! is a writers collective that was born out of the MFA program in Creative Writing and Literary Translation at Queens College, CUNY in the summer of 2010 to create work outside of the classroom.  In January 2012, we founded the Oh, Bernice! Reading Series, which produces monthly multi-genre, multi-cultural literary events at the Astoria Bookshop in Astoria, Queens.

We invite you to attend our readings and explore our blog, for the latest info.

In response to the recent tragedy of losing our own Hoyt Jacobs to a sudden, horrific accident, Oh, Bernice! gathered funds for The Hoyt Jacobs Poetry Prize, given yearly to a poetry student in the MFA Program in Creative Writing & Literary Translation at Queens College.  After an outpouring of overwhelming support, we’ve been able to establish the prize for years to come!  To donate, please visit the QC website at www.qc.cuny.edu/jacobs.
