Poets in the Park 2016 Proposals

Poets in the Park is back! Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 25, 2016 for another Poets in the Park poetry festival at Anderson Park in Redmond, Washington. We have a bountiful day of events planned, with workshops, readings, performances, book fair, an open-mic reading, and more. Bring a lunch and join us for this FREE event!

Want to participate? We’re looking for proposals for readings (25-minute slots) and workshops (55-minute slots). Send proposals as soon as possible to Michael Dylan Welch at WelchM@aol.com, with the following information pasted into your email (no attached files, please).

Reading Proposals

As with our previous festivals, we’re looking for readings by groups or organizations (if in doubt about what qualifies, just ask—a theme might work). Include this info:

    1. Title of reading, group, or organization.

    2. Organizer’s name (who should also be willing to MC their reading segment, or let us know who will MC).

    3. Names of possible readers (at least three).

    4. Any audio-visual or other stage needs.

Workshop Proposals

Workshops should focus on the craft of poetry and include generative and sharing/discussion activities. With your proposal, include a catchy title, the workshop facilitator’s name(s), and a sentence or two describing what participants can expect to learn from the workshop.

Please send your proposals as soon as possible, along with any creative or wacky ideas, and any questions. Thank you. And have you marked your calendar yet? See you on June 25!
