  1. I loved reading about our retreat weekend and our new poet friend, Tracey. What a gift you’ve both been to me. Thanks, Rosemary! Much love and peace to you.


  2. just a note from a guy who left his heart in Waynesville NC for a period of time I was there, living and working, writing, etc. also Asheville. miss both places terribly. good luck with your presentation for Echoes today at Eastern Kentucky State, I am thinking this is at Richmond, Ky . I met many fine people at Eastern Ky State, Richmond if this is where you are today for the presentation. I went for three years every summer for the fiction and poetry workshops and received a lot of crits. published my first book of poems from Owl Oak Press, in 2006. and every year for the last three years I go to Somerset, Ky to see Bill House, a Faulkner scholar and we trade fiction crits and good times. we both have learned a lot from those sessions. cheers, fred tarr, I will join literary latte and will begin periodically reading your blog. thank you. I recently became a north of the border member of Netwest and published a poem with the new editors in H.O.D. (wordpress) handful of dust. they are busy grinding it out there in the mountains as well.

  4. Hello! I’m a NANO Fiction subscriber and adored your flash fiction piece “Ben Affleck Is My Lover.” Admittedly, I read it first before the rest of the issue because in some circles it’s so easy to make fun of him — Batfleck, anyone? But you developed a great character-driven story in just over 80 words. Successive word repetition tends to bother me, but your repeated use of “long” effectively built up the narrator’s tension and yearning for this Affleck-esque lover and made me wonder what became of them as a couple. Lovely writing, and I’ll have to look up some more of yours!
