    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for these SPLAB updates. I’m hoping you might be willing to post about the new Cave Moon Press anthology, “Broken Circles–Poems about Food,” released in September 2011. The book is a collection of poems about food from local and international poets, and a little work horse on behald of raising funds and awareness of the need for contributions to food banks. Already, locally, we’ve organized venues at local cafes and schools and I’m wondering if there might be ways to work together in the coming months. Would love to hear from you and take care–Denise

    Sure thing. Doug’s a good guy and when there’s a reading coming up, send a blurb & we can plug it. I have asked Doug to be a Cascadia sponsor, which would help get the word out as well.
