Connie Mettler talks with Marcy Boroff, from Renaissance Craftables, one of the east coast’s premier craft show promotion companies partnering with downtown areas and non-profits. Marcy Boroff had worked with her mother, Barbara, on shows for years and took over the business in 2010.
As a craft show promoter, Marcy feels very strongly that it is a partnership between the artists, the downtown areas or non-profits she is partnering with, and the community of festival-goers.
How did this company get from mall shows to the streets of some of the best shopping areas in the East?
We talk about:
the role of the show promoter and why they do it
choosing a location to host a show and starting a new show
building and implementing a marketing plan
the good part of being a show promoter
the bad part and the worst part
building relationships with the shopping areas where they host their events
building relationships with artists
the future of craft shows and their economic impact

San Diego County has been called "the Craft Beer Capital of America," home to 97 licensed breweries & brewpubs, with 41 more in the planning stages. San Diego County's numerous internationally recognized and award-winning breweries have created a beer culture that is a draw for foodie and craft beer tourism, particularly during major festivals such as San Diego Beer Week. Launched in 2009, San Diego Beer Week is now a ten-day county-wide festival, held in early November and aimed at both local residents and tourists. In 2012 there were more than 500 events scheduled during Beer Week!
For the first part of the show, I'll be talking about the influence of craft beer and the craft breweries on the food scene in San Diego County. For the second half, I will be joined by Executive Chef Alex Carballo, Former Executive Chef for Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, who recently partnered with industry veteran, Jon Mangini, to launch URBN Coal Fired Pizza in El Cajon.

It is with great Behind the Prose pride that I share awesome news about Natalie Baszile's first novel. Queen Sugar is moving to Oprah Winfrey's OWN network under the helm of "Selma" director Ava DuVernay.
I am proud, but I'm not surprised. Days before the news broke, I wrote "If there ever was a novel that surely will be a movie, Queen Sugar is it."
I met Natalie at the 2012 VONA Voices Workshop. In a nonfiction workshop taught by Faith Adiele, I had the pleasure of reading excerpts of Natalie's memoir in progress. The same rhetorical qualities that endeared me to her writing are earning her praise in a number of reviews: eloquence, description, and confidence.
But in the words of the first book reviewer I knew, "Don't take my word for it."
Listen to Behind the Prose on Sunday, March 1 at 6 p.m. EST!

The more we produce scholarship, the more we are dedicate ourselves as masons to the pursuit of ethics and priniciples the more we reach out to like minded men. Comparing us to a country club does a deservice to the country club and the Craft. They meet entirely different needs. We have our place when a man needs it? Intellectually, we dip into this reservoir as much as we need at a given moment. The individual determines the interval. A summons is only a call out. Filling seats is a different task. In fairness, we have extended the season. Each season, year by year our lands became crowded. He cannot expect time to stretch and neither do we. Better to avoid any pretence of imposition and to present ourselves as indifferent to a mans life.
Showing him dedication is an obligation the better students offer to the new boys. Thoughtful discussion, encouraging his questions, meeting his needs; these are aspects we at times overlook. Perhaps this accounts for those who drop out before the 3rd Degree, but not likely. We initiate a great number in hopes of finding the worthy. It's a pretty big seive and many fall through the grid- no worries- it was meant to be that way. Perhaps he will return- best respect his decision and not chastise or chase.
As we improve our skills, we can begin through our work to express gentle expression and emotion. Leave it to the new boys to punch too hard, too often and have hope they will eventually find just the right touch- the OMG moments- after all- it isn't called the Gentle Craft for nothing.
Age of 21 born in the City of Memphis TN, Frayser area by way of Atlanta GA.. Young Memph has been influenced by artist such as Yo Gotti, Mr Bigs, The Isley Brothers, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Biggie & Tupac. Yet to date his greatest influence remains to be his sisters that taught him how to drop bars. Young Memph moved to Atlanta at the age of 12 and started recording at 13.
Memph states “he knew his music was good but not good enough” and started to make music all could enjoy, by not overpowering his musical creations with profanity . Not to say he has gone soft or lost his edge, his craft proves he can go bar for bar with the best of them with so much personality and distinctive swagger in his flow one can’t help but listen close for his next punch line or how Memph will deliver his next verse, while proudly holding his head high when his mother listens to his musical
