Family, Friends, Fundrazrs: lend me your eyes!
I come not to bury Poetry but save it
in the sense that all films of readings live
forever in the ones and zeros of time.
Do you not know what Poetry has left you
as an inheritance? For your support
you may receive books, poems, and signatures
and all who back with their hearts and wallets
will be immortalized like colossi 
who stride o'er endless plains and seas of verse!
If you have cash, prepare to back this film;
If you have friends, prepare to share this page.
Were I a Draper, all Fundrazr Paypals
would rise to fund this film; but I'm a poet:
a plain and blunt man; I only give the chance
to film Poetry: when comes another?

Hosting and party and making a documentary doesn't come cheap!

Here's how your donations will help:

Transportation to AWP for me and our camerman: $600
This is our first expense we need to meet. I would love to raise more money to help other performers come to the show.

Venue for the reading and party: $1,000
We always have the best parties at the most intimate and engaging places. If you know of a great place in Seattle near the convention center, let us know!

Reimbursement for our Table at AWP: $500
I've already paid for this (since payment was due in September), but it would be good to put that money back where it goes.

Payment to cameraman: $500
He's not going to work JUST for a free party and vacation you know!

Party funds: $400
Those libations and delectibles aren't going to magic themselves into existence without your help!

Bringing along a photographer: $600

10% fees to Fundrazer: $600

Helping poets with transportation: $2000

Making awesome buttons for everyone! $500
