The Motown Literary Meet & Greet - August 2011
Saturday, August 13, 2011 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
Essence of Motown Literary Meet and Greet is geared to kick off our conference season in an effort to raise funds and register people for the conference.
In August, we dedicate our usual writers discussion at Barnes and Nobles readers writers & community to come together in an effort to increase awareness for the needs in Metro Detroit.
We invite non profits, libraries and authors with purpose to come out to speak about their project and network with the local literary community. For people with events this will be your chance to commune and speak with leaders in the literary community, meet local authors and display your fliers and materials on our promotional table.
For us, we hope you come
with donations for our conference. We are hoping this year to making our
writing portion free through grants, but we still need location fees,
lunch sponsorships, tables fees and so forth so we use the Meet and
Greet as our initial fund raiser.
This year, there will be only five author slots available. Payment for these slots will consists of 5 books by the author and $20 dollars.
Schedule of Events will include:
- MEETING local authors
- NETWORKING with local community leaders
- GIVING to help strengthen the Metro Detroit literary community
