how much do you charge to be a featured poet? does it depend on the venue? do you include travel in your cost? do you depend moreso on selling your books to audience members rather than getting paid a certain percentage from the door?
what if the gig is outside of your city? do you expect the oragnizers to find your lodging?

Wow... they can't hear? Kinda makes performing a bit more challenging, eh? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "When we're writing, I'm not sure that we think of the reader.

ive paid 500-800 for honorarium for my performers.... but only because i was unable to pay 1000...and only because my grants didnt come through 100%
with me i usually say the honorarium includes lodging and the performer is given a list of lodging ive screened in the area in all price ranges. i usually buy dinner and i find some restaurant to host the wine and cheese reception.
