The Osterhaut Library in Wilkes-Barre puts out a literary magazine every few months called Word Fountain. It features poetry, prose, and fiction. For the next issue, the editors plan to do a glossy edition, thanks for a grant, focused on the flooding caused by Hurricane Agnes in 1972 and Hurricane Irene last year. If you have any writing that is flood-related, or any pictures, consider sending it in to the staff at Word Fountain. Here is some more info, taken from the journal’s website:
Hurricane Agnes has an anniversary on June 22nd 2012. It’s been 40 years since Agnes tore through our towns. When Hurricane Irene followed her lead, we here at Word Fountain decided to do something about it. We are creating a special issue of our literary magazine. Once printed, this publication will generate donations that will go to a fund at the Luzerne Foundation to help recovering flood victims.
You can help. Send us your 2-D art, photos, writings of 1,000 words or less (any age, any genre). We chose the 40th anniversary as an extended deadline.
