Help a Sister Out!

April 6, 2010

Leigh Stein, author of the chapbooks Summer in
Paris, How to Mend a Broken Heart with Vengeance, and Least Inhabited Island
II, is awesome.

She's also obsessed with puppets! And putting
poets voices inside them.

Leigh is asking for your help. Not because
she’s insane, silly. Because she wants to buy a FlipCam so she can bring
puppets to AWP in Denver as a part of Poets and Puppets!

Leigh writes:

For those of you who were at AWP last year, I might
have asked you to record a puppet video with Bernadette or another special friend.
This year I am asking for your sponsorship. If you like poetry, if you like
puppetry, if you like fun, hell, if you like me, please consider helping me
purchase a Flip Cam so I can bring puppets to Denver, and in return you will be
handsomely rewarded in heaven and also here on earth:

For $5, I will record a video of a puppet of my
choosing reading a poem of your choosing

For $10, I will make a puppet that resembles you or
a loved one and this puppet will ride in my suitcase and join my cast of
characters (please send reference photos to leighstein (at) gmail).

Such a steal! Leigh’s project is 92 percent
funded so far. She just needs a few more sponsors. So go to Leigh’s blog and
sponsor a puppet. And if you’re at AWP, be sure to stop by TABLE X to make your
own movie at AWP.

I confirmed this with Leigh: “ANYONE can make a movie with me at AWP, whether I know them or not,
whether they gave me $ or not.”

But still, even better to sponsor a little puppet of your own and get to know Leigh, don't you think?

The puppet recordings will be happening at Table X
at AWP.

Good luck, Leigh. Good luck, Poets and Puppets.
