More good news

This morning I received a note from Amanda Earl, at Bywords, that three of my poems will be published in their winter edition, and an invitation to read at their winterfest at Chapters Rideau on January 21, 2007. If you will be in the Ottawa area, come on over!

I can't say enough about Bywords. Amanda, along with her husband Charles and several volunteer readers, do an amazing job of making poetry accessible and visible in the Ottawa Valley. The chapbooks are interesting and affordable, the opportunities to read and share the poems truly outstanding, and Amanda's personal dedication to all things poetic is remarkable. Plus she is a really wonderful poet herself.

This is my shout out for Bywords...for encouragement, and for caring, and for excellence.
