Spring Tides Reading Series
Call for Expressions of InterestSpring Tides is an annual reading series held between March and June (inclusively), that showcases new and established writers. The series presents four to five readings - two in St. John's and two to three readings elsewhere in the province - featuring two writers each. Each featured writer reads for approximately 20 minutes and participates in a brief Q & A following the reading. WANL provides an honorarium of $125 to each reader.
WANL seeks expressions of interest (EOIs) from writers who would like to participate in this series during 2012. Preference will be given to writers who have a recently published book. (Please note: Submitting an expression of interest does not guarantee you a reading spot in this series.)
EOIs should be submitted to the attention of the Readings Committee at:
223 Duckworth Street, Suite 202
St. John's, NL, A1C 6N1
Fax: (709) 739-5931
Readers will be chosen and confirmed in February 2012.
Submissions deadline: Postmarked no later than Friday, January 27, 2012.
Call For Local Volunteer OrganizersThe WANL Readings Committee is also interested in hearing from WANL members who would like to act as local organizers for a Spring Tides Reading in their community. Expressing interest in this regard does not guarantee that a reading will be held in your community, but it will help the committee to get a sense of where there might be support for an event. Interested volunteer organizers should contact Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 27, 2012.
