Message from the moderator
- I am sorry to say that my computer died and I lost all the information some of you asked
me to post for March and April. Yes, I had a back up external hard drive which, when I
needed it most, also failed. Talk about Murphy's Law.
So, if you have a reading, workshop or conference occuring in the next few days, please
resend the details to me asap. If you can format them as shown below, I will post them
promptly. If your event is to occur after March 15, please wait a few days and then send it
Thank you for your patience and for subscribing to PoetryNJ.

- Dear PoetryNJ Subscribers,
As your empty inbox suggests, there has not been a lot of literary activity going on in the tri-state area in August. Do not despair, things will pick up in September when Poets House opens its brand new center in lower Manhattan and other organizers return from their vacations from words.
That said, today begins Myth, Mountain & Imagination, a getaway for poets and writers in Wales [http://wales.murphywriting.com]. For the next week I will be in the heart of the Snowdonia Mountains leading fifteen writers through adventures in words and in wild Wales. There will be no internet, no email, and no posts on PoetryNJ.
If you are an event organizer, please email your information formatted like the sample below to pembroke9@..., and I will post it when I come down from the mountain. Please give me at least two weeks notice, more if you can. Last year, we posted more than 800 events. I need as much help as you can give me.
That's it for now.
