We have our work cut out for us, sending out a whole bunch of thank-you gifts!
The “Bundle of Books” came in, very fine writing by some of our excellent local writers. We are extremely grateful to Christopher Barzak, Steven Reese, Rebecca Barnhouse & the family of E. Hallaman for their donations.
The broadsides featuring Frank Polite’s poem “Tornado” are being letterpressed on elegant Crane Lettra cotton paper at the Cranky Pressman.
T-shirts with the Lit Youngstown logo and with Dianne Borsenick’s poem “Disco” have been newly designed and are in production at Fresh Prints.
Bookmarks have been designed at Youngstown Design Works (along with new business cards and letterhead: fancy!) and they will be printed by Insta-Copy Center.
Many of you took Nin Andrews up on her gift of a copy of Why God is a Woman to ten donors of $25 or more. Thank you, Nin!
We will be delivering/shipping out everything soon!
