Submissions for our special September 14th reading are due tomorrow!

            

Attention, Chicago Writers Conference attendees! You have until tomorrow night to get us your submissions for our rare special Friday edition of Tuesday Funk.

The reading will take place the evening of Friday, September 14th, at the non-profit Open Books bookstore, in conjunction with the Chicago Writers Conference.

We're currently looking for three conference participants to fill out the roster for this very special evening of fiction and poetry. If you'd like to be considered as a reader, please email us at cwc@tuesdayfunk.org. Tell us a little about yourself and about your work. Include the piece(s) you'd like to read by pasting the text into the body of your email. (We prefer not to download attachments.) For fiction, limit your submission to a total of 2,000 words or less. For poetry, send a sample of four or five poems. Readings will be limited to 10 minutes or less.

We are open to any type or genre of fiction and poetry, so long as it's entertaining to listeners. But since we won't be at our usual adults-only location on September 14th, please keep the contents to a mild R rating. And remember, you must be a registered Chicago Writers Conference attendee to participate. (And yes, we will check. Submissions from those who aren't registered by August 25th will not be read.)

The entries are rolling in! Submissions are due by Saturday, August 25th, end of day. The three readers selected to participate will be contacted by no later than September 1st. Don't miss your chance to participate in this exciting evening of live literature, and good luck!
