Word Fountain Flood Issue

Rachael Goetzke and Ed Lupico, my friends and fellow writers at the Osterhought Library in Wilkes-Barre, are trying to pull together a glossy issue of the journal they run entitled Word Fountain. They want the next issue to focus on the flood from last September and Hurricane Agnes of 1972 that caused the evacuation of several communities throughout Pennsylvania, especially the northeastern part of the state. They are seeking fiction, poetry, essays, art, and pictures.

They plan to donate all of the money they generate from the issue to flood victims. I know that a lot of my friends in this area were affected in one way  or another by the most recent flooding, or they have relatives that shared stories about Agnes. Why not try to write something for the issue?

There’s still time to submit. The deadline is this week.
