Last night, I was elected unopposed as the Vice President of Writers in Townsville Society for 2012-13.  Here is a message of introduction about the group from our President:

Introducing Writers in Townsville Society (WITS)

Ask any dedicated writer & they’ll tell you that writing is a vocation not a hobby. Our world view is influenced by that constant stream of thought that converts people, places & incidents from the mundane to the exceptional.  For forty years this year WITS has provided an environment where writers from all genres & levels of writing can share their successes and aspirations.

I am thrilled to let you know that I'm receiving some wonderful poetry from all over the English speaking parts of the globe.  It makes choosing poets to feature difficult, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Please send me your best unpublished poem of twenty-five lines or fewer, and I will try to respond quickly, honestly, and always with an appreciative spirit for the care and time you offer me.
