What Happens Now?

Most of the major Fringe Festival lotteries have come and gone and, after applying to Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton, I find myself only accepted into Edmonton. Now, don't get me wrong, I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in this festival, but it does put a bit of a chink in my summer touring plans for Roller Derby Saved My Soul. I'm also a little nervous about showing up in Edmonton without any kind of advance summer press or reviews.

So what happens now?

Well, while there are still a few Fringe festivals I could apply for - currently debating between Victoria and the Atlantic Fringes; Victoria because it's close to Edmonton and doesn't overlap next year, and the Atlantic Fringe because it brings me closer to home - I've now been setting my sights on festivals and organizations outside the Fringe circuit.

I've got my own list going, and a few applications already in the mail, but this is a fairly new phenomenon for me, so if you have any thoughts or ideas please feel free to share them in the comment section.
