Zoltar Speaks! Call for Fortune Poems!

Perhaps you have heard we at Stoneboat are collaborating with our friends at the Paradigm Annex Theatre Collective (PATC) to offer Art Prom, a fundraiser to support the work of our two organizations.

As part of the fun and festivities of Art Prom, scheduled for Saturday, May 31, 2014 at Paradigm Coffee and Music in Sheboygan, we are going to offer a "human Zoltar machine." In order to do this, we need a human. We have him. We need a costume. Have that. We also need fortunes. These, we do not have. This is where you come in.

Please submit a fortune to support both Stoneboat and the PATC. The fortunes can be written in poem form, prose form, or whatever form best expresses the fortune you wish to put out into the world for some unsuspecting soul. This is what real Zoltar cards look like and you are free to interpret the fortune writing as you wish:

Please send your fortune submission in the body of an email (no attachments please) to by midnight, May 16, 2014. In the subject line, please write [your last name] Zoltar Submission. Please include your name, address, and phone. No bio necessary. We will have the poems printed up on cards and will charge a small fee for prom goers to receive a fortune from Zoltar. We cannot pay you for your work, but please know that your creative effort is going to a good cause, two good causes in fact: Stoneboat and the Paradigm Annex Theatre Collective.

And, while you are at it, come to Art Prom and have some fun from 8 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, May 31! Must be 21 or older to attend. For $15 per person, ($25 per couple) you will get DJ, dancing, booze, snacks, prom attire, balloon arches. What more could a grown-up ask for on a spring night?
