Calling all North Florida Writers! You will have another opportunity to “Meet the Public” and market your writing. The Antiques, Arts & Collectibles Festival will include a Local Author Expo and is inviting all writers in our region to come, spend the day, maybe due a reading, sign some books and maybe gain some readers in the process. This event will be held on July 18, 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs, Florida. They are combining several different events this year to make one big show which should draw in a fairly nice crowd.
The authors will be located in the air conditioned Nelly Bly Kitchen and will be provided with tables and chairs. A homemade ice cream vendor will be right outside. Both the nice cool building and the ice cream vendor should entice lots of visitors. The cost will be $20 per author or 15% of sales.
All you have to bring is some of your books and marketing materials. The park staff will be advertising the event and will need to know about how many authors will be available by July 6, 2015. All you have to do is contact the Gift Shop Manager, JoAnna Lemmon, directly either via telephone or email. She would like to organize a reading, perhaps about 10 to 15 minutes for each author who would like to participate. Be sure to tell all your friends and family members to come on over to the park. Their admission price is only $5 per car load unless they already have an annual Florida State Park pass.
