WordTasting Tour 2015


Asymmetrical Press, The Minimalists, and Exile Lifestyle present: WordTasting Tour 2015

Not just a book reading, not just another event—a meaningful experience. Asymmetrical Press’ team of talented authors is hitting the road in May and June for a WordTasting Tour across the western United States and Canada. From minimalism and travel to storytelling and humor, this tour provides a taste of something for everyone.

Join Colin Wright, Josh Wagner, Shawn MihalikSkye Steele, and special local guests for an evening of WordTasting: readings, stories, live music, questions, and answers. Plus special guests Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus of The Minimalists will host and read at most events (see full schedule for details).

Admission to each two-hour event is free. So are the words. Come get a taste of something simple, unique, indie.

Use the hashtag #wordtasting on your favorite social network to share your thoughts, images, and videos from the events, and take a look at our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr accounts to see the digital keepsakes we’re collecting along the way.

WordTasting is brought to you by Bluehost. This is a company that, when we mentioned we wanted to do a crazy tour with poetry performances and book readings and music, immediately wanted to be involved and asked how they could best help us make it happen. They’re putting their money where their mouths are when it comes to supporting creatives, and are why we’re able to make all of our tour stops free. Check them out if you’re looking for web hosting or related services: they do great work!

We’re also very fortunate to count the folks who make Scrivener among our sponsors. We at Asymmetrical gleefully use Scrivener to publish all of our books, and are thrilled that they offered to support us during this tour. If you’re publishing or thinking of publishing a book, we highly recommend checking them out.
