Wondering if there is must interesting in pitching an event for next year Sabateur Awards.
As this probably won’t show I’ll post more in the comments.September 8, 2019 at 12:02 pm #7133
Here is the link, for information. Please comment if you’re seriously interested. An idea of the fee you would want. Obviously, we need to be wary not to pitch ourselves out of the water, so to speak. This would be a great platform to highlight the wonderful poetry coming from the press.
Thanks, as always, to Mark for making this community and creating so many opportunities!September 8, 2019 at 12:32 pm #7134Lorraine1956Keymaster
Will take a look as soon as I can. I am finally moving tomorrow so packing up again. have been living out of suitcases for the past three months and trying to keep up with my poetry. Speak soon.September 8, 2019 at 6:02 pm #7135

Great, I’ll check back on Thursday (I’m on holiday in Scotland at the moment).
Good luck with moving Raine!September 12, 2019 at 10:18 am #7185
Anyone else interested in pitching a Hedgehog event at the Sab awards?
Submissions open tomorrow.
Darren and Raine, any idea what fee?September 14, 2019 at 11:28 am #7218Lorraine1956Keymaster
sorry I’ve not been back to you but what with moving and getting the last editing done for my book, there’s still a bit to do I’ve simply not had any time. I will take a look over the next couple of days and get back to you, regarding a fee. Remember the fee will need to cover, travel expenses and possibly acommodation for some? Have a super weekend.

I would be interested too, need to know the venue though, but sounds great. ValerieSeptember 20, 2019 at 11:58 am #7294
Sorry not to have got back sooner.
A 30 minute slot means there is not room for masses of poets, perhaps 5 or 6 max (which would give 6 or 5 minutes to read).
As for a fee – it would be good to cover expenses – how about £100 per poet?
have you got an email address so I can send my bio for part of the submission.

I’ve done a bit of research about what my own fee would need to be and I think it’s probably not achievable. Factoring in the flights puts it up exponentially.
Sorry to suggest something and then back out. I’d love to be able to do it.
Darren do you want to take this forward? Happy to read over your pitch if you need another set of eyes.
My email is email@example.com
