The Sundress Academy for the Arts is looking for readers to participate in our fundraiser reading for the Mountain Access Brigade, a Knoxville collective focused on decreasing the stigma around abortion and woman’s reproductive experiences.
We’re seeking, in particular, authors—novelists, poets, memoirists, or something in-between—whose work highlights or focuses attention toward these complicated and often unspoken conversations.
The reading will be on Saturday February 8th, 2020 at 6pm at Union Ave Books, with a portion of all proceeds benefiting the Mountain Access Brigade.
To apply, please send a short letter of interest, and up to eight pages of sample work to our Reading Series Coordinator, Emily Jalloul, at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th, 2019. We will be selecting up to three readers for this event.
The Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA) is a writers residency and arts collective that hosts workshops, retreats, and residencies for writers in all genres. All are guided by experienced, professional instructors from a variety of creative disciplines who are dedicated to cultivating the arts in East Tennessee.
