The Summer Gazebo Readings feature 4 published authors/poets each Monday evening throughout the summer, set on a village green in Oceanside. An eclectic mix of authors (non-fiction and fiction) and poets read from their works before large, friendly, receptive crowds.
Send an email(no attachments) giving the following information:
Contact information (including a number you can be reached on the day of the event in case of inclement weather)
List your available dates. The Readings are held each Monday in June, July & August-- we do an Independence Day program on the first Monday in July-- Please list at least three available dates.
The general genre of your work (poetry, non-fiction or fiction prose, etc.)
The only restrictions are time (10 minutes, strictly enforced) and the material, as read, must be appropriate for general audiences (think basic cable, not HBO/Showtime).
For more information, see our website: http://summergazeboreadings.
Spaces are limited and will be allocated at the discretion of the committee. One of our criteria will be to include a mix of genres (some poetry, some non-fiction prose, some fiction), so while we won't ask you what specifically you are reading--we will not "judge" or preview material-- we would like to know the general genre of your work.
Please note that we ended last year with over 200 people on our waiting list-- please do not be offended if we can't fit you in. We hope to announce the summer's lineup by May 1.
We are also offering "Program Patrons" for $25. "Program Patrons" will have their names listed on the weekly program we will be distributing each week.
If you would like to become a sponsor or a Program Patron, send your check made payable to "Oceanside Kiwanis" to 68 Yorktown Street, Rockville Centre, NY 11570-- email or include your logo and the listing you want us to print.
If you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact me for more for more information.
Whether you read for us this year or not, I encourage you to come on down, every Monday in June, July and August, for a nice, quiet summer's evening on Schoolhouse Green!!
