Hey there, Started this tribe for the scribes, foodies and supporters. Please join and feel free contribute your words, recipes etc. or just your comments. Our first event in SF is in October, the call for writing is below. This event should be lots of fun! Francesca
Are you a cunning linguist? Of course you are, well at least we think so. Does your writing elicit the occasional moan and "peel" of delight? How would you like to read it to an appreciative audience, lovers of food and lovers of love and the love artists who love them?
When is this? Sunday October 15th. What will happen at the reading? 5 or 6 writers will have 5 to 8 minutes each to read any of the following: short story, poem, recipe, essay, benshi, ditty (acapella or acoustic), short-short or flash fiction or an excerpt from your novel, play or screenplay. Requirements: if you are a food writer/culinary expert/chef/sommelier please submit erotica. If you write erotica please submit something that has culinary leanings. Keep your voice, switch genres for a night or two…
What about my chapbook? My novel? My zine? My anthology? My art? If you’re one of the performers then please bring your wares, we’ll set up a table in the back for the sale of such good works; also, rumor has it you’ll get a drink ticket to sample some of CAV’s fine wines and beverages. Performers should bring their mailing list as well, so your people can see more of you.
Well, its settled then, please send us your writing published, pending or new DEADLINE: by early deadline 9/7/06 or 9/15/06 as the absolute deadline. Pdf’s and Mp3’s can be sent to Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can join our tribe: https://tribes.tribe.net/sexyfood Questions, brainstorms and logistics: Francesca ###-###-####

"Once in a while even serious poets lighten up. Usually I need help! That's why I have Francesca Prada in my life. The girl has a SOH (sense of humor.) Sexy Food is her brainchild. I'm on board to help curate and produce. The reading will be this coming Sunday, October 15th at CAV wine bar, 7-9PM. Cav is a sexy, sophisticated space right next to Zuni Cafe on Market Street in San Francisco. Come hear a fine selection of writers on the topic that's on every true San Franciscan's lips: FOOD. The reading is the day after Litcrawl - an event guaranteed to get you folks who don't frequent readings too often hepped up and juiced about how fun and sexy they can be!"
