What does consensual mean? When permission is freely given and agreed to on an ongoing basis throughout interaction. In order to be consensual, both parties must be able to freely consent, which cannot occur if one party is incapacitated or severely intoxicated, or if there is a power dynamic between the two parties. Any individual or groups found in violation of this policy may be removed from Omaha Lit Fest events and banned from re-entering.
