hi friends , do you go to college or university ?? if so , i’m askin for you’re help please !!!
i want to book a lot of touring this spring, including house shows and all kinds of fun wacky stuf.. but i want the main route to be booked aroundd well-funded shows… and the main way i get well-funded shows is from schools, becaus they usualy have a big budget for performers & guest lecturers.
usualy at colleges i do a poetry reading, with an open mic before me or performers from a slam poetry club.. i’ve also been doing workshops about social media , like how to use social media for activism and art, or how to use it to build a following /support yourself as an artist.. i can also do lectures about all the possibilities of “internet poetry” that have opened up in recent years.. at most schools i do a performance + workshop now !
most college students dont know HOw to get me booked at their school / get funding.. but if you are interested and willing to do a little work, then me and especialy my booking agent Scott can help you do it.. basicly you need to convince a few key people in charge.. sometimes you have to get a student group involved as a “sponsor”.. sometimes it takes persistence, other times its surprisingly easy ! but we know the process and can help you
if you do this i would be so excited and grateful.. i would love to chill with you for a day or two at your college.. i can also do a DIY show in town if theres an art space or reading series that would appreciate that. basicly the college bookings help a LOT , and im very very grateful if you’re wiling to help
if you wana help book me at your school , please email me at email@example.com, mention which school you’re at, and any other ideas you have.. i’ll add scott to the email thread.. then in most cases you’ll call scott, so he can walk you thru the nuances of your particular school (its hard to explain it all over email)
thank u so much for considerin this !!
