To Whom It May Concern,

It is Inspired Word Cafe Society’s goal to be the number one provider of performance poetry in British Columbia, and through Season 9 open mic/open slams, Kelowna Poetry Slam, and the Milkcraters of the Moon Reading Series (in collaboration with the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC Okanagan), we believe this vision is possible.

We invite you to sponsor our 2018/19 season which begins on September 15, 2018. Over the course of this season, we hope to deliver high calibre performance poetry events and workshops that aim to provide space and encouragement for artists to shine, grow, and develop their craft.

IWC hosts monthly open mic/open slam, a visiting author reading series, as well as hosting and producing the wildly popular Kelowna Poetry Slam events.

To make this season a success, we are looking for help from various organizations within our community. We are seeking support in the following:

● Season Title Sponsorship
(Named opportunity for all IWC events over the 2018/19 season (eg. Inspired Word Cafe presented by “Your Organization Name”)

● Single Event Presenting Sponsorship
(Speaking opportunity for a single IWC event)

● Contributing Sponsor
(This provides flexibility in our planning so we may allocate our resources where we need them most.)

In return for your generosity, we would love to make you a part of our event. Please see the attached page for sponsorship benefits.

If you are able to provide support in any way, please do not hesitate to contact Erin at erin@inspiredwordcafe.com.

On behalf of the Inspired Word Cafe Society, I would like to thank you for your consideration. It is through the support of our local businesses and organizations that we are able to nurture and serve our communities.
