Would you like a chance to curate a session at the Boston Book Festival on October 27, 2012? We are making two one-hour slots available to outside groups/individuals who can introduce fresh voices and new ideas to the BBF. Be creative! The session can involve a workshop, literary improv, dramatic readings, literary games, etc.
You will be responsible for running your session, i.e., gathering your participants, beginning and ending on time, and covering any expenses (beyond room rental and basic A/V) for the session. We will publicize your session on our website and in our Program Guide, and we will ask you to publicize it as well.
We will evaluate proposals based on:
1. Will the content appeal to the BBF audience?
2. Does the content offer something different from standard BBF fare?
3. Is the individual/group offering a plausible plan for implementing the session?
In your proposal, please tell us:
Who You Are (your name, name of organization [if applicable], your bio, your or your org's website):
Title of Proposed Session:
Description of Session (150 words max):
Implementation Plan (400 words max, including answers to the following questions: If there are expenses associated, how will you fund your session? How will you guarantee your proposed participants' involvement? How will you communicate your plans and needs to BBF staff? Through what channels will you publicize your session?):
Deadline for Application: July 15
Notification: August 15
Submit all materials (including samples of previous work, if applicable), to:
