We have 2 months of school left.
But, the calendar is still growing. So, I think I’ll do a little updating for those of you who are curious what the chickz are going to be doing in these last weeks of school (the last last weeks for a few people!)
On the 26th of March are two very large and awesome events. The first being a bridal shower for the lovely Abby Hines (soon to be Abby Grindle). We are all stoked as pie to see our Ab-Tastic celebrate her wedding here in a few months and the bridal shower will be a nice kickstarter to all the mania. Next that day, the stellar Ashley Ford will be reading at Big Car Gallery in Indianapolis for Vouched Books. The last reading was rad (Really Awesome, Duh), and we are pretty proud of our lady and can’t wait to support her in Indy.
Then, on the 31st, Layne and myself, along with Tyler Gobble and Jeremy Bauer, are leaving for Slash Pines Poetry Festival at the University of Alabama. There, we will be featured undergraduate readers, reading right along with other university students and published authors. We are thoroughly pleased and awed at this oppurtunity and you can learn more about that here (we are halfway to our funding goal!).
Finally, (big news for all you chicklitz supporters and readers), we six chickz will be having a reading in Muncie at Village Green Records. After which, will be a dance party, perhaps even with a musical guest. We’ll be keeping you posted on that. But, the most important thing to remember about the 15th of April (SAVE THE DATE) is that we will be releasing our first ever Chicklitz chapbook. This publication will feature around 2 or 3 peices from each of us ladies and will be printed and designed by us as well. We will let you know when to pre-order if you’d like. And, if you can’t make the release party, contact one of the chickz via our Email The Chickz page or Meet the Chickz page and we can see about getting you a copy.
