I am dazzled by how much you've done for reading and writing on the coast. It seems you spend money much, much better than I do. Thank you for letting me contribute. Thanks to you, I can still meet my commitment to support other writers and readers.

I clipped the article from the News-Times about the Poetry Writing Workshop!!!!!! I am so excited I can barely keep my lips from falling off. I am going to plan my summer around it.
