Additional Notes:​

  • Christopher Poindexter will schedule his arrival at the festival/event venue one day prior to the event. This allows ample time for him to ensure availability, make necessary preparations, and familiarize himself with the surroundings. Additionally, Christopher will stay for one night afterwards, providing him with an opportunity to rest and prepare for his departure. Depending on the location of your event, if Christopher arrived without his personal vehicle, to facilitate his transportation needs, we kindly request the arrangement of a car, taxi, Uber, or Lyft for pick-up and drop-off services between the venue and Christopher's hotel. This ensures a smooth and convenient transition for him during his stay.

  • Christopher Poindexter will provide his own typewriter and any necessary materials for writing custom poems at the event. However, in order to create a comfortable and convenient workspace, we kindly request that a tent and table(s) be set up for his use. We recommend at least two tables to fit a comfortable space for typing poems, as well as an additional table for products such as signed books. The typewriting area should provide enough space for the typewriter, paper, and any additional materials Christopher may require during the writing process.

  • Providing the cost of meals during Christopher's three-day stay, or any other gifts or kind gestures would contribute to making Christopher's experience more enjoyable and appreciated, but please note, we do not require any specific offerings. If you feel inclined to express your appreciation and enhance Christopher's experience, you can make the personal decision to do so.
