A BOOK EVENT, BUT FOR EVERYONE
3/13/18: POST-PROM UPDATE
Thank you to everyone who helped make Whale Prom such a tremendous success. Over 1,000 people attended our alternative book fair in Tampa on Friday March 9th, 2018. Our goal was to create a safe, accessible space for all conference-goers, and we couldn't have been more thrilled about how this event turned out. The attendance & enthusiasm for this event easily exceeded our expectations.
We'll be taking a month or so to relax, but IT BRINGS US GREAT PLEASURE TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE FULLY PLAN ON ORGANIZING ANOTHER WHALE PROM ON FRIDAY, 3/29/2019 IN PORTLAND, OR. We'll be looking for a similar accessible space with a similar max capacity. We are planning a few enhancements, but we don't want to fix what isn't already broken.
If your press, journal, or lit organization is interested in participating next year, please sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page. We'll also be sending out a short survey to vendors & conference-goers in the coming weeks.
Thank you all, for all of this. What a tremendous event. We can't wait until next year.
Colette, Mark, and Mike
