I'm looking for
16 writers with new, novella length releases or collections for 2016 (winter into spring) to participate in
8 weeks of promotional blog/web touring time
sun and weds posts
8 readers per work commenting
2 hosts & 2 authors per week
all in one, and one for all promomotion/involvement
The goal is to help generate an awareness of good writing to an online audience, noisily and with an attention each work deserves. To foster a sense of community and commentary.
The criterea is that the writing must be feminist, as in there is a principle upholding and feeling the fire of the fight for equality. A matter of concept, not a restriction on sex or gender. It must also have some speculative element, whether it be literal fictional dragons or a metaphor or poetical device of fact.
Each work should be around 30 pages, inclusive of story, essay and poetry. Each writer will need to supply a free copy of their work to one another. Participation of the Dervish Tour should not be limited to writers who can afford the retail prices of the works involved. Each of us will host once, read one peice of work a week and join the discussion for each, and write a small review to be posted on seller sites and our favoured corners of the net. We will all share links to the tour on our social media.
Once the writers of the Dervish Tour are gathered I will draw names out of hat to determine the writer and hosts duos. You will be in contact and told your slot, and the process by which you host is up to you.
If you are interested please contact
