Join us in this genre industry networking mixer!

For location, please contact me, Greygirl (Susan), here or at susie at minglemangle dot org (temporary email)
The mixer is free! We just ask that you support our venues by buying a drink or a soda.
And great news! www.pretty-scary.net is going to support our sexy asses!
I have been arranging horror film networking mixers for many years now and have been disappointed in the lack of women in attendance. Perhaps we just need to feel comfortable in an environment related to the genre and have something to call our own ... without the stigma of a women's role in the industry, the stigma that keeps women IN FRONT of the camera ... and rarely behind!
We want to network where we feel accepted on a creative level, as well as a technical level. We want to join talented women to meet, support, and promote one another!
All interested female artists welcome! Filmmakers, actresses, musicians, screen writers, etc. etc.!!!!!!!!!!!
SWAN Day is a project of The Fund for Women Artists, WITASWAN & You
