Thank you!

So, I'll Show You Mine: A Sex Writing Symposium was a success! THANK YOU so much to everyone who has supported, contributed, and who came to the event. You're the best :)

We've honestly been flabbergasted by the response - it's felt really special, and you've all made it special.

We're putting together the audio for the day now, so you'll be able to listen to your heart's content! Stayed tuned to @show_you_mine and check out our website showyouminesymposium.com for updates!

Our creative prize is also open! Free entry - fiction/nonfiction/poetry/images/hybrids. £500 prize pool and publication in the chapbook! This closes on July 10. Send send send. More details here: https://showyouminesymposium.com/prize

As for the future, beyond the chapbook, we'd love to make I'll Show You Mine a continuing enterprise. We're thinking about a journal, future events, perhaps taking this on the road. We're open to ideas so do give us a shout if you have any thoughts! :)

On that note - we'd LOVE your feedback! Email us [email protected] - we want the good, the bad, the could do better, what you'd like to see in the future. This was our first event so we have a lot to learn - your insight will help us make future events even better. Thank you!

Our Crowdfunder closes today - if you or your friends want to chuck in a few quid to help make the future happen, feel free, though honestly, we're overjoyed with how our Crowdfunder and the event has gone, and we can't thank y'all enough :)

Have a super Sunday, and let's chat soon ;)
