You can see my girlfriend Debby’s chronicle of her speed dating experience at the second event here, or Luke’s report of the first event here.
As it turns out, running poly speed dating takes more than one or even two people.
Our first event attracted fifty people to a pizzeria in Berkeley.
The second event was attended by ninety people, and we completely stuffed the pizzeria, including their banquet room.
I’m at the PNWA (Pacific Northwest Writing Association) Conference this week.
This event is like Gay Pride for writers–so a lot fewer speedos, but everyone is stoked about their alternative lifestyle of colorful characters.About 35 literary agents and editors are here, listening to all of us desperate writer freaks pitch our super neat stories. I was so nervous, all I did was read my pitch to agents.I got some requests for samples out of it, so I figured it must not be that bad.We are looking for a larger venue for the third round, which has not been scheduled.If you want to participate in a future round, go to the poly speed dating website and email us using the link at the bottom to be put on our mailing list.This writeup started as a report on a poly speed dating event I have been helping to organize, and turned into a meditation on holding innovative poly events.
