Join us in celebrating our 40th year in 2016-2017
by participating in our #RHINO40Readings40Cities initiative!
Who can participate?
Anyone can be a host and anyone can be a reader. Hosts and readers can be RHINO poets from one of our past 40 issues, or simply a fan of the journal. If you’re new to RHINO, we welcome you to the herd!
Where can the readings take place?
Anywhere you want to host – your local independent bookstore, library or community center, favorite coffee shop, and your own living room are all perfectly wonderful.
Yes, but what happens exactly?
If you’d like to host a reading this year, we’ll connect you with possible readers in your area, send you a swag box, and help with publicity. We will also provide you with online materials including tips for a successful RHINO reading, a sign-up sheet for those who want more information about RHINO, and print/web versions of our logo.
After the reading, we’ll post your photos on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. We’ll even post your write-up and photos on rhinopoetry.org’s Big Horn Blog.
What’s in the swag box?
- 3-5 assorted issues of RHINOs for you to sell or give away
- our famous poem bookmarks
- #poetrychangeseverything buttons
- a rhino t-shirt in your size
- a rhino cookie cutter and our rhino cookie recipe
Include your name, how you are affiliated with RHINO, where you live, and the date(s) you have in mind.
And remember to follow us @rhinopoetry and on Facebook.
We look forward to hearing from you! The sooner you have an inkling you’d like to do this, drop us a line!
