Hyper-local will be the focus of tonight's discussion with Fountain favorite poet Ryan Kent and local media expert Tony Harris.
See behind the scenes of what it takes to run a successful local media blitz and how writers can work in partnership with zines, online journals, influencer campaigns, and promotional techniques often used for other art forms to create buzz.
Both guests will also discuss the creative aspects of their work and how it has changed over time.
