Cascadia Poetry Festival Small Press Fair (May 1–May 3, 2015)
Registration is now open for the Cascadia Poetry Festival Small Press Fair taking place in the student lounge of Building 355 at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. This sunny roomy lounge with the great views of the harbour and its protective islands is located next to the Ralph Gustafson Theatre, where most of the events take place. It is a natural area for participants to visit the small presses and to sit and chat over tea or coffee. The lounge also opens to an outdoor seating area.
For $100, each participating organization (not limited to small presses) will receive a 4-foot-long table and have its logo featured in our printed program and on the website. Participants receive 4 Gold Passes valued at $25.00 each, granting admittance to all events with the exception of the writing workshops. Please note that some events have limited space and are first come, first served.
For $50, micro-presses etc. will receive 1/2 table and have their logo on the website, plus 2 Gold Passes.
Participants are responsible for their own table coverings and signage. Load-in and set up is Friday 8:30 to 10:00 May 1, 2015. Vehicles must be removed from the street by 9:30 a.m. Access by vehicle is via Fourth Street [map].
