Here in Tucson, AZ, there is a great non-profit, Casa Libre, that supports a literary community of poets in this city. They hold donation-based readings and workshops (not donation-based) hosted by poets from Arizona and all over the United States. As a woman of color, I really appreciate that they go out of their way to welcome and include diverse poets and readers in their community so that everyone’s voice can be heard.
There are having an event called “500 Sonnets” on June 9th to raise money for their organization so we can keep having readings and paying poets.
I will be writing and reading sonnets for this event on June 9th and need sponsors to help me reach my goal of raising $100.
You can sponsor me here. You will need to key in my name after you click “shop” and my name is “Andrea Ivy.” You can sponsor me before the event or on the day of online.
Thank you for reading and donating if you are able.
