The wildly popular Cheap Wine and Poetry/Cheap Beer and Prose readings series are looking for a new host. So if this sounds like you...
Are you a sparkly, literary-inclined, kick-ass woman? Can you commit to hosting six events a year from September-May on Thursday nights at Richard Hugo House? Are you open to hosting events in special locales (like Bumbershoot or The Seattle Rep or someone’s arty loft in Pioneer Square)?
...you should apply via the Facebook page.
Nobody asked me, but here's what I think a great literary series host should do: Very little. A good host is brief above all else. (In fact, a good host should almost disappear. The only times I've ever left a readings series talking about the host was when the host fucked up: Got too drunk, was too insulting, talked way too much.) Then, from most important to least important, the necessary qualities are: Informative, funny, charismatic, humble, and imaginative. If this is you, or if this is a friend of yours, you should get to Facebookin'.
