CWP/CBP seeks BFE* for LTR

Charla Grenz, veteran host of The Cheap Series: Cheap Wine & Poetry and Cheap Beer & Prose, is relinquishing her title as emcee. So, we need a new one.

Are you a sparkly, literary-inclined, kick-ass woman? Can you commit to hosting six events a year from September-May on Thursday nights at Richard Hugo House? Are you open to hosting events in special locales (like Bumbershoot or The Seattle Rep or someone’s arty loft in Pioneer Square)? Do you live in Seattle? Do you think “that’s what she said” jokes never get old? Does the idea of a job that pays mostly in street cred, free, cheap booze, and adoration excite you?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, we want to talk to you. Please send us an email telling us why you’d rock the mic like a vandal. Also, please let us know some readings/events you’ve gone to around town, and who are some of your favorite writers.

If interested, series co-founders Brian McGuigan and Steve Barker will contact you to set up a time to meet. 
Deadline for applications is July 13.
