      The countdown to September 24 is on!!! Charleston has an amazing community of writers and poets so sign-on and let’s talk about how to use that might!!

      EVENT#1–Write a poem to be shared with your city, state, and national officials and/or your local newspaper. Tell them what matters to you in your community!! Use the power of poetry to (hopefully) open ears, minds, hearts. Send it to them on September 24, 2011 as an individual or send it to me, by September 20, and I will forward them to our state’s leaders: Write on!!!
      **please put 100,000 in Subject Line
