Letter to “Women on the Fringe” & Fringe Femmes

FringeCongrats on your show and thanks for finding us!

We’re looking forward to working with you to promote you and your show and connect you to other Fringe Femmes.

Here’s What You Do Next…

For those of you who joined us at our annual Fringe Femmes Gathering at Ensemble Studio Theatre Los Angeles on Saturday, May 25, do stay connected and expand your circles!

Many thanks to our hosts at EST/LA, and gratitude to our wonderful friends at Samuel French Bookstore in Hollywood for providing us a home for the last six years.

Submit for Women on the Fringe:

Each year, we feature select HFF shows as part of  Women on the Fringe.

If your show is written by a woman or female-identifying artist (or at least 50% female if multiple writers), we’ll be glad to include it! Submit your show by using this link: http://lafpi.com/about/submit-show/ (And remember to check “Women on the Fringe” and send us your graphics!)

Tell ’em You’re With the FPI:

For great cross-promotion, please include our Logo on your programs, websites and materials – flashing the badge makes it quick and easy to take positive action!

Click Here for Downloadable Logos.  (We’ll also make sure you’ve got Badges for your venue – they’ll be at Fringe Central.)

Connect Through Social Media:

If you haven’t already, find us on Facebook.com/LAFPI and join our conversation on Twitter @theLAFPI (tag us – we’ll RT & more).

For Instagram @thelafpi, connect with us and be sure to tag us; we’d love to post about your shows!

Constance Strickland, a formidable Fringe Femme who’s produced HFF shows, is again captaining a “LAFPI Fringe Femmes” Facebook Group to act as a discussion/bulletin board.  Join Here!

On Twitter, I’m personally @jenniewebbsite and we’ve got other people on board as well, so we’ll get the #HFF19 #womenplaywrights out there. Go #FringeFemmes!

NOTE: Beginning late May and throughout the Fringe, we’ll also have #FringeFemmes Guest-Tweeters on @theLAFPI Twitter Account. It’s been a great way to get to embrace different artists and voices and strengthen the #LAThtr #parityraid year ’round.  If you’re interested, email lafpi.twitter@gmail.com.

For More Support:

  • If you have a an announcement or discount you’d like included in our eBlasts to members send short (50-75 words) request for consideration to info@lafpi.com. Deadlines are 28th & 13th of each month.
  • We’re giving out FPI’s Most Wanted Awards again this year to femme-friendly theaters.

Remember to Promote Yourself as a Resource:

We’d love to keep track of you and include you as a Resource for future collaborations beyond the Fringe!  If you’re a theater artist who identifies as female (all or part of the time) and wants to keep working in the LA area, visit the page and contact lafpi.resources@gmail.com to be included.

Really excited about the femme energy the surrounds the Fringe each year and we’re proud to be a part of it. But remember that we’re all volunteers. So if our response to your questions or materials is delayed, we’re working as fast as we can.

That said, feel free to shoot me any questions at lafpi.updates@gmail.com, check out lafpi.com to see else we’re doing and definitely join our Mailing List for news, opps & updates. Thanks so much; I hope to catch your show!
