Oceanside Arts Clash, October 8

Good evening, all!

Most of you receiving this have already signed up--others of you should!

As most of you know by now, A Word with You Press is celebrating its first anniversary on October 8th (I know, I know, Yom Kippur).  Our anniversary will also launch the First
Annual Oceanside Arts Clash.

We are not lacking for participants for our October 8 event.  We already have a full rostrum of artists, but I still have room for more writers, and I am still waiting to hear from Glassless Minds if they will be up for/down for/in to a poetry slam concurrent with other events of the day.  The jazz band is in. If you are or if you know of a published author who'd like to attend, please have them contact me at [address removed], and I will forward them the ground rules and application/agreement.

Below is a flier I have already been distributing, and it is the same as the attachment.
Please print out as many of these as you think you can distribute, and please post it on your websites and facebooks as well.  If you can personalize the language, addressing your own friends, that I think would be helpful. PLEASE HELP BUILD ATTENDANCE!

Let people know that every one who attends will be issued a free raffle ticket, and for every $5 they spend they will get an additional ticket.  When someone buys an item from you, they come to our cashier/greeter with the receipt to claim extra raffle tickets.  That way we can tally up what each artist sells, and what their contribution (30% of sales with a $10 minimum) will be at the end of the day.

Booksellers are not required to contribute more than the $10 set up fee, as there is very little markup for books. Authors will each be given center stage for 20 minutes to read from their work in our office/clubhouse, while other activities continue in the courtyard.

Each artist will be responsible for selling and collecting for their own work, and tax, and can set their standards for method of payment.  If someone wants to pay with a credit card and you are not equipped for that, we (A Word with You Press) can handle the transaction for you.  You decide if you will accept checks.

Based on past experience, we advise that among your art for sale are low dollar items.  If you have an original for $350, have a print for $20.  Everyone will want a souvenir of the event, if it is affordable.

Also important that people who come know that all proceeds will benefit Kid Expression, our non-prof writing program for children and young adults.  Additional raffle tickets will be for sale for $2 each, or 15 for $20.  Food will be available with a suggested donation, and again, each $5 spent gets the buyer another raffle ticket.  We are (under) paying a professional band, and each time someone tips the band $5, another raffle ticket. AND WE WILL HAVE EXCEPTIONAL PRIZES TO RAFFLE OFF!-- A Barnes and Noble Nook certificates for local eateries(including the "Elaine's" of Oceanside, The Flying Pig) and gifts from assorted local merchants.

Tickets will be for sale on line at soon.  The drawing will be held at 4:30 on October 8th, and you need not be present to win. Each artist and author will also be given a ticket, in the hopes of creating a little scandal!

We will have a meeting again for all artists(not necessary for writers to attend, though they are most welcome to join us) on Saturday, October first at 10:00.  You can bring your work at that time.

Thanks so much for time, your efforts, your talents, and your consideration.
