Author Carly Kade Joins the EQUUS Film Festival to Head Up the Literary Corral
Literary Corral To Expand Spotlight On Equine Authors At 7th Annual Event
This year the EQUUS Film Festival will broaden its Literary Corral and focus on expanding the reach of our literary entries with a bright spotlight on equine authors as part of the event. Participating authors will be given time to brainstorm with each other as well as filmmakers, meet-and-greet with readers, sell books, and conduct book signings at the 2019 EQUUS Film Festival. During the festival, select authors will be invited to join in on Literary Discussion Panels.
"The EQUUS Film Festival brings the storytellers of the horse world together through films, art, music, and books," said Carly Kade, author of the In the Reins book series. "I am honored to partner with them on the 2019 Literary Corral to expand equine author participation, collaboration, and introductions to filmmakers."
The Literary Corral will host books of many genres with the horse as the common focal point including children's books, fiction, romance, travel and guide, illustration, tribute and photography, historical explorations, activist, training memoirs, and more.
"All of the authors who participate in the EQUUS Film Festival are linked through creativity, passion for writing, and love of horses," said Lisa Diersen, Founder of the EQUUS Film Festival. "Carly Kade is a natural fit to head up this year's EQUUS Film Festival Literary Corral because her passion is helping equine authors unite through her Equestrian Author Spotlight series."
"I've learned so much from other equine authors and appreciate how unique each of our writing journey is," Carly adds. "I think it is so important to support each other and share knowledge among us. We are stronger working together to expose this niche genre of ours. The Literary Corral is a great example of that."
The EQUUS Film Festival strives to serve the interests and needs of equine filmmakers, artists, and authors by connecting creatives with audiences, exhibiting and promoting new films, filmmaking talent, books and equine art. Their mission is to nurture a creative community by facilitating relationships that last well beyond each year's festival.
The criterion for a book's submission is that it captures the elements or essence of the horse, the horse industry at large, and/or all that surrounds the horse. Equine authors can submit their book for 2019 EQUUS Film Festival consideration by visiting http://www.equusfilmfestival.net/
ABOUT THE EQUUS FILM FESTIVAL
The seventh annual EQUUS Film Festival will take place December 6 – 8, 2019. EQUUS Film Festival is the first event of its kind to offer a home to the storytellers, from around the world, of the horse through feature films, documentaries, video's, commercials, and short films as well as cultural elements of fine equestrian art and literature.
Founded in 2013 by Lisa Diersen, President/Director, an avid equestrian who has spent her life in the company of horses. Lisa's mission is to show the world how horses can bring everyone together regardless of race, age, gender, abilities or disabilities.
