Hi All,

I thought I was giving up this space for facebook but some of you don't like that idea so I'll place the info here as well. Plus I'll keep the website up for the time being.

Thurs. Dec. 11, 2008 #232's reading with Pat Hurshell, Nancy Dahlberg, Kim-An Lieberman + Carolyne Wright on The Writer's Craft - was terrific. Sorry if you missed it due to my not posting here.

I hope to see you for our first reading in Jan.

Happy New year,
