No Limits 12 Hour Read-A-Thon

Hey folks,

This is for real! It’s your chance to be heard . . . on your terms. It’s the very first NO LIMITS 12 HOUR READ-A-THON. It’s on Saturday, May 19 and it’s sponsored by the Maritime Writers’ Workshop and Literary Festival.

It’s all over downtown Fredericton and there are no . . . absolutely no . . . limits on what you can read. No limits on who or what you are . . . you can be a writer, you can be a not-writer. You can read something you’ve written or something somebody else has written. You can read your favorite letter you’ve received from an old friend. You can read your favorite piece of documentation. You can read your favorite poem. You can read from your blog. You can read from somebody else’s blog. You can read a short story you’ve written.

There are NO LIMITS. You can be 9 years old or 90 years old. You can be a journalist or somebody who reads newspapers and magazines. You can be a sidewalk bard, a folk singer, a river poet, a radio copy writer, a computer documentation writer, an annual report writer . . . there are NO LIMITS!

If you’re interested send me an email at biff@biffmitchell.com or send Andrew Titus an email at atitus@unb.ca. We need to hear from you soon because Fredericton’s very first NO LIMITS 12 HOUR READ-A-THON is just 17 days away.

PLUS . . . there will be a poetry slam, a reading on the Green, a special venue for kids!

And please . . . forward this email to as many people as you can think of who might be interested in reading ANYTHING they’ve written, or anything anybody else has written . . . like the lyrics to their favorite Doors song, or the funniest for sale sign they’ve seen on a bulletin board, or . . .
