This is Just to Say


Thank you!

Good morning, Internets!  I slept for 11 hours last night* and, woke refreshed and ready to clean up the last details of our 24-Hour Reading. Today I’ll be making recipe cards and mailing off the fresh bread, and then getting books, stickers, and tee-shirts** ready for tomorrow’s mail.

What a great weekend it was – cooking and playing with you all in my kitchen, hanging out with Sam Teitel (yes, even during the Fifty Shades of WTF portion x.x), getting loud and shuffling the piles of papers with Nick Davis, reading DJ Dotty P and Denise Levertov  with Sarah Sapienza, hawking tee-shirts with Bill MacMillan, enjoying cucumber sandwiches and scotty dog cookies and tea with Jenith Charpentier and guests, singing with Liz Heath – so much fun!
With your participation and donations to our fundraising efforts over the last month, the bulk of which happened this weekend, we have surpassed our goal of $1,000 to cover hotel and registration for the 2013 Worcester Slam team at the National Poetry Slam in just a few weeks (August 12-17). THANK YOU!
