Words from the good heart of Jack Scully follow...with too many things to tag...
May 2017 bring you all good fortune and health and may your writing be full of publications and successes.
Busy January coming up next Sunday will be the regular monthly reading at PTAOW, the feature poets will be Alice Kociemba of Falmouth and from Lowell, Leo Racicot.

Mass Poetry would like to let you know that they have added a submission option for Poem of the Moment. Poems of the Moment appear on their homepage for one week, are featured in their newsletter to 5,000+ subscribers, and live permanently in the Poem of the Moment archives. They are looking for a wide range of poets, as long as they have a tie to Massachusetts and have published a chapbook or full-length manuscript. Please spread the word to your community and encourage individual poets to submit.
