Volunteers sought for Paris literary projects:

SOUGHT: Guest blogger for an invaluable monthly calendar of literary events in Paris http://parisreadingsmonthlylisting.blogspot.fr/ The postings only happen once a month and include English, bilingual and a selection of French reading events and writing workshops. Guest blogger will be encouraged to add their own personal touch to the postings. Currently the job involves 1) receiving and ordering in paragraph formats the information for sections 1-2 of the blog on events and writing workshops in Paris (most people do know how to format these, but with bookstores and various events the job involves reformatting and even contacting or seeking the information) 2) locating information for section 3 on potential calls for work, and selecting a smattering of prose, poetry, travel writing and other information and 3) including in section 3 and on the sidebar announcements for new and forthcoming books by authors based in Paris or who will be reading in Paris that month. Benefits? Everyone will love you forever for helping get the word out. Occasional tickets to events for free (ie some of the theater events) and books by guest visiting authors. The timing is ONE post per month, usually near the start of each month. If interested, please contact Jennifer K Dick at fragment78 at gmail dot com.
