While I try to keep the contents of this blog focused on other people rather than using it as a soapbox to promote my own work, this is one project that is all-encompassing enough that I’m making an exception to that. I’m planning a literary event, and I need your help!
Plans for the First Annual Austin Feminist Poetry Festival (working title) are underway. The tentative date is April 4th through 7th, and I am looking to recruit volunteers to help me plan and implement the event.
Anyone who wants to help is more than welcome. I have a particular need for people who can assist with fundraising and grantwriting, but anyone who is enthused and wants to help is more than welcome. This will be a big job, and the more the merrier!
Please note that this festival embodies an inclusive definition of feminism. It is not an event for women only (however you define the term). All feminist-identified people, regardless of sex/gender expression, are welcome to join the planning committee.
If interested, please contact me at email@example.com. Once I have ascertained interest, I’ll email interested people to set up our initial planning meeting.
Please feel free to share this with your various social networks, in order to reach people who might not read this blog, but who would be interested in participating.
