The organizers of the Frank Stanford Literay Festival – a three-day event in Fayetteville, Arkansas – are looking for help to honor a few central figures in Stanford’s creative career by supporting their travel to participate in the festival.
Sponsors will be acknowledged in promotional materials and in a commemorative, hand-sewn program designed by Cannibal Books. Sponsors will also receive a broadside of a poem from Stanford’s final book, You, designed and printed collaboratively between Lost Roads Publishers, Cannibal Books and Effing Press. Sponsors will also be verbally recognized at all events, which include a Small Press Reading, several Stanford readings, two panels, a screening or Irving Broughton’s legendary Stanford biopic It Wasn’t a Dream It Was a Flood, and a marathon reading of Stanford’s epic poem The Battlefield Where the Moon Says I Love You.
Donations are tax deductible and payable to Lost Roads. For more information, query Matthew Henriksen at frankstanfordfes-at-gmail.com.
