Admission is free, with a suggested $5-20 donation to help pay all of the artists, support the venue, and help publish sPARKLE & bLINK 98 featuring all of the writing performed at the show — the first 100 people will receive a free copy (regardless of donation or not) featuring letterpressed cover art by Amos Klausner!


Scan of the letterpressed cover to sparkle and blink 98, by Amos Klausner. It says, above the simulation of a red wall or fence: "Have you been afraid to tell your story until now?"
