Here’s a link to the launch of Writers of the Future Volume XXII. More photos to follow, I hope.

In the meantime, I was saddened to miss this occasion, as sent to me by a friend:

> Aug 18
> Bad Poetry Day — After all the “good” poetry you were forced to study in
> school, here’s a chance for a pay back. Invite some friends over, compose

My first appearance in print was a joke poem scribbled on a music exam while waiting for the time to run out. My high school music teacher submitted it to the school magazine, which published it without telling me. The rest is history. Or something very much like it. 🙂
