Greetings from Springfield. The last many days have included webinars about SBA loans and conference calls about re-scheduling events and altering programs. This hour is so refreshing. Thank you, all! I'll offer this, a recording of some of the recitations at the Illinois State POETRY OUT LOUD contest on March second: https://vimeo.com/401421899. I have broadcast permissions and media releases on file, so you can share it. [Timothy is the Chicago-land coordinator of the program, and the Poetry Out Loud anthology includes poems by Gwendolyn Brooks.] www.poetryoutloud.org for more information
