MASTER CLASS SERIES: WRITING & THE BUSINESS OF POETRY - How to Market Your Career & To Whom?
w/ BETHSHEBA A. REM AKA QUEEN SHEBA & TAMIKA 'GEORGIA ME' HARPER


Thank you for joining us for the second instalment of our POETRY MASTER CLASSES. We will be scheduling these classes periodically, as the demand calls for it. Please sign up again and again! No two classes will be the same, experience. This class is open to the first 50 participants to ensure personalized attention to the work, questions and answers. The class is open to anyone 18 years old or older, at any stage of your writing/performance career.

The overwhelming feedback we received during the previous class was, "Now that I'm a performer, how do I market my career ... and to whom?" We understand the sense of urgency when creating a tour, and wanted to make sure everyone has the tools they need to present your product (which can be YOU) to the world, so we're back this month to give you a focus class on marketing.

We are bringing a professional photographer to take head and full body action and still shots (depending on your personality! - You will learn in this class that a good comp card doesn't have to look your 8th grade class photo - buyers like personality!) After each mini photo shoot you will get to take home your favorite poses to use howevever you like!

As an added bonus we have a professional graphic designer that will come in and discuss your comp card format options, you will choose the one you like best and apply your favorite photo, company/product/performance bio (3 paragraphs max! to fit formatting) - your final take away project, will be a professional digital EPK that you can email to anyone from the touch of your fingers when negotiating your next project.

Our graphic designer is coming in at a huge discount as a favor to us and the work we're doing to try and help people present their best professional selves. Most recently you can see his work on the 'Dirty Sprite' album cover for Future, Trap or Die 3 for Geezy, all Poetry vs. Hip-Hop graphics, cartooning to calendars and many, many more!

This package could typically cost around $300 to get a professional photoshoot and a comp card plus a class on how to use it - is only $105 for the next two weeks!
