I need 60 poets to read at Harvest Fest:
We need 30 poets each day over two days to read for six minutes each.
This will be a large outdoor family oriented function, part of Plainfield's annual Harvest Festival,
on Saturday September 20th 2003 & Sunday September 21st 2003.
Please, keep in mind there will be children and families in attendance when choosing material for this reading,
and choose appropriately. Please have at least one poem on fall or the harvest.
This event is entitled the “Gourmet Junction Harvest of Words” and is being sponsored by and hosted at Gourmet Junction,
(www.gourmetjunction.com) at 505 West Lockport Street, Plainfield, IL.
The readings will take place under a tent on the street in front of Gourmet Junction.
Local high school and college poets will be reading between 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm,
and adult poets between 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm each day.
There will be a single table available for chapbook displays for shared use by all poets.
If fully booked, this event will feauture a total of sixty poets, thirty adult and thirty young poets over two days.
Interested poets please contact:
Daniel A. Stafford
Please provide your name, city or neighborhood, phone number, e-mail if available,
and the best times to reach you, and age group, school or adult.
This event could well kick off monthly readings in Plainfield, so we need to really show ‘em what we can do!
This event will be free to the public.
I’ll be taking names until 4pm Tuesday, September 9th or all 60 slots are booked, whichever comes first.
