Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase awareness and appreciation of the literary arts. Increase audience members by 20%, growing to serving at least 480 people over the season. At least 90% of the attendees, who respond to our survey, will leave each event having learned something new about the writer and his or her process of creating their book. Track number of attendees at each event, compare it to our attendance figures for our pilot year, then record this information for tracking purposes to use as a base line for future growth. Distribute a short survey to each attendee,asking them if they learned something new, and what specifically it was that they are taking away with them from the event. We will then tabulate the results and track them throughout the season.
