African American Read-In Event at Otterbein University

African American Read In

On Tuesday, February 8th at 6 pm, I will participate in the African American Read In event at Otterbein University alongside Rayshawn Wilson. I am truly grateful for opportunities like this. If you would have asked me in undergraduate school if I saw myself public speaking in the future, the answer would have been to no. I was extremely afraid to talk around others and I often forgot my lines. I sometimes stuttered as well.

As time progressed, so did my presentation skills. I have presented to college students, attended numerous authors events, and have been given a great amount of time to increase my confidence in presenting.

Hoping you all with join me in this Zoom conversation about publishing, writing, authorship, and upcoming events.

Registration Open

Hello my good people,

The registration for the Read to Lead/ Write to Enlight Book Festival has opened up. We are truly excited for this event to take place, as well as other future events.

Read to Lead, Write to Enlight is a call to action. We dare you to Read to Lead, Write to Enlight and buy books locally. The event is geared toward spotlighting 7-10 local authors with the potential to also include 1-3 authors from other states. Authors will have the ability to sell their work, talk with attendees, and get the community engaged in reading, writing, and literacy activities.

There are different ways to support the event, which are:

Author Table

Includes author table, two chairs, a boxed lunch, and a page feature in event booklet.

Author Table/Sponsorship

Includes author table, two chairs, a boxed lunch, a page feature in event booklet, and benefits of a gold sponsor.

Spotlight Author

This allows you to support the event without attending the event. There’s nothing like wanting to attend an event, but being unable to do so because of your location or activities. Well with this option, you name and a link to your website will be added to this page.

Sponsorship/Advertise

There are three different levels of sponsorship, which are Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The very basic level allows you to be featured in the event booklet. The next level not only allows you to be featured in the event booklet, but also allows your name or organization to be listed on all the promotional materials. The last level allows you to have all the features of the Silver sponsorship with a shoutout on various social media accounts as a sponsor.

Interested in being an author, listed on the website, or sponsoring this event? You have two options to participate, you can go to my Envite page and select a sponsorship level or go to the registration page to select any and all options.
