2017 Spring Tides Reading Series: Call for expressions of interest

Spring Tides is an annual reading series held between April and June showcasing new and established writers. The series presents four to five readings with each featuring two writers. Each featured writer reads for approximately 20 minutes and participates in a brief Q & A following the reading. WANL provides an honorarium of $125 to each reader.

WANL seeks expressions of interest (EOI) from writers who would like to participate in this series during 2017. Preference will be given to writers who have a recently published book. (Please note: Submitting an expression of interest does not guarantee you a reading spot in this series.) Should you have a launch scheduled for the Spring of 2017, please let us know where and when.


-Participation in this series is open to WANL members in good standing.

-Writers who read in this series in 2016 are not eligible.

Expressions of interest must include:

-Mailing address, telephone and email;

-An up-to-date list of publications and invited readings;

-The locations where you are available to read (ie up to an hour’s drive from your home town)

-Your availability during the months between April 2017 and June 2017

Submissions that do not contain ALL the requested information will be deemed ineligible. Readers will be chosen and confirmed in mid April, 2017.
