A Festival of Words Fundraiser
We hope you are safe and well during a time of a pandemic and struggles for justice and peace.
During a difficult year, creative expression is more important than ever! The Festival of Words committee has sought an alternative fundraiser to Word Crawl. We are planning Words for You, a project of commissioned poems, stories and songs. Would you be willing to donate your time and skill to write ONE
poem, story or song for Festival of Words?
Under this project, Festival supporters will have the opportunity to commission a work by a favorite author! You would be a perfect artist for this project because of your fine writing, and your appreciation for community, literature and Festival of Words (FoW).
Here’s how it works:
· Writers volunteer to craft original works.
· From this group of volunteers, each patron choses a favorite writer to craft a poem, story or song. (July)
· Patron donates to FoW and fills out a questionnaire about themselves, which will serve as writing prompts.
· The writer receives the request, and creates a new work, based on the prompts. (July/Aug)
· Virtual performance of the poems, stories and songs. Date TBA (Aug or Sept.)
DONATIONS (donated by patron to FoW):
$50 (minimum) for one original work
$100 (minimum) for a poem by a current or former Poet Laureate
