Call for Presenters for LIFE Detroit's DARK 7 Weekend
Each year, during the first weekend of February, the Leather Institute for Education (LIFE) Detroit hold an event known as the Detroit Area's Rough & Kinkfest (DARK) Weekend. This year, the event will be held February 4-6, 2011.
The event, which began in 2005, is an educational weekend where LIFE Detroit invites in local, national and international presenters to discuss topics of importance in the Leather/BDSM/Kink community, as well as provide hands-on demonstrations of various play and techniques used by members of the Community.
I would like to invite you to be a presenter at our DARK 7 weekend.
Please submit a description of the class or classes that you are interested in presenting/demonstrating and a brief description of what would be covered in your presentation/demonstration. This should include objectives for the class. Presentations run 50 minutes during the Saturday of the event (February 5, 2011.) Our attendees will have all levels of experience.
A current biography and a photo that can be used on the website or in program materials should also be submitted when you submit your class proposal.
These items should be emailed to email@example.com and must be received no later than Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Keep in mind that the venue is in a semi-public location (hotel) and standard Michigan rules apply€ ¦’·no nudity, a jock may be worn, but must have at least a 1" strap covering the crack of the ass, genitals must remain covered, womens breasts may be exposed, but the nipples must be covered, etc. You class would have to conform to these guidelines.
LIFE Detroit is willing to entertain a proposal on any topic, but we will have the final decision on what we feel would be best for the crowd we are trying to reach.
On Friday night of the weekend (February 4) we host a "Bottom's Buffet." This is a night were we set up several different stations manned by some of our weekend presenters. It allows people who may never have experienced a flogging (for instance) to get a sample of it (10-20 minutes or so) without engaging in an entire scene. It allows people to experience play they may never have tried so they can see if they like it or not, or it may allow people to experience techniques on a skill they love, but at the hands of a different person. We hope you will consider being a part of this event, also. If you are interested, please let me know what station(s) you would be interested in doing.
If you have questions about this letter, or about DARK Weekend, please let me know. I may be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell phone at (734) 260-2388
We look forward to having you as part of our weekend.
And remember€ ¦’·Don't be afraid of the DARK.
