Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy New Year! Thank you for being here! I hope 2024 is going to be kind to us all. Here’s your tip!

When applying to festivals, make sure you can get there.

That is, if you’re flying, what do flights cost? How do you get to the festival location once you arrive, especially if it isn’t near an airport? Are you going to need to rent a car? What’s the public transit situation? If you’re driving, how long is it going to take? Do you need to spend a night somewhere on the way? Do you need someone to swap off driving?

For example, The Great Burlesque Expo is in Salem, MA. Most people are going to fly into Logan Airport, in Boston, 45 minutes to an hour away by car. There are options, like taking the Boston-Salem train, but you’ll want to make sure you know stuff like how to get from the airport to the train station.
