Propose an event for the 2017 Festival season

Who says March is the only month to celebrate the creative voices and visions of women writers? The Festival is now welcoming proposals for events to be held in any month of the year!

Our Winter/Spring 2017 schedule is now full. Check back soon or sign up for our newsletter for news on our Fall/Winter 2017 season.

When you submit your proposal, we’ll need as detailed an account as possible of what you have in mind. Full guidelines available here.

All ticketed events under the Festival banner must contribute at least 25% of ticket sales to the Festival, which will help us to cover the considerable costs of doing what we do best: hosting, publicizing and promoting your event.

Your $25 proposal fee helps to offset the costs of processing the multitude of proposals we receive, and keeps our Festival going strong.

Please read our complete guidelines for prospective Festival presenters here.
