Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam on Kickstarter

Melinda Hall hopes to raise $1,500 for the 3rd Annual Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam. This event is scheduled to take place in New York City on April 23, 2013.

Above, we’ve embedded a video about the Kickstarter project–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

We are back to produce Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam 2013 where 154 Readers of all ages will recite all 154 Sonnets on stage at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. The event is free to the public but there are producing costs involved to rent the equipment and videotape it for possible inclusion in the film project How Shakespeare Changed My Life.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
