$250 - Brewslam Sponsors:

For Brewslam sponsors we are asking for $250-$500, 1-2 Pony Kegs and any inkind/swag you would like to provide for participants and guests.

Where does the money go?

This event is 100% volunteer organized - funded by supporters, ticket sales, organizations and publishers through our small press fair, and breweries through the Brew Slam. 

Right now we are working to raise between $7500-$15000 to cover the expenses of this event. 

These costs go to pay for location fees, workshops, printing costs with extra funds going to help cover travel expenses, lodging and if possible a small stipend for participating poets, artists and scientists from other areas.
