I have accepted an invitation to be a juror for the Literary Art exhibit at SEAF (Seattle Erotic Art Festival) for 2012. Last year both Roxy and I submitted work and were accepted as exhibitors. Seeing my story in print was a huge high, but reading it to an appreciative audience surpassed even that. So, I was going through my works in progress to see which I thought might make the cut this year when the invitation landed in my email.
After a few days of pondering, and the reassurance that I would have a chance to read some of my work at the festival, I decided to go for it. This is a new role, not anything I’ve ever done before, so it should be a great learning experience. It will also be a great networking experience. I know two of the other judges, but the other 2 are new to me. They are predominantly poets, and I think I’ll be the only short story writer on the jury. This will be a great opportunity to learn something about the process and about the lit art scene in Seattle. And, this is the 10th anniversary of SEAF, so it’s going to be a very good time to be involved.
