Vote! and Stuff

Our latest issue of Swamp Lily Review is available for your reading pleasure. We have some wonderful artists, photographers and poets in this issue. We’re focusing on an annual happening in our area called Vision/Verse.
Vision/Verse is an interesting event that reinforces the bond between the literary and visual arts by examining the role of inspiration in art, particularly how poetry can inspire art and how art can influence poetry. Read the editor's note, then click on Issue 2, Number 2 to meet our contributors.
Second: The Bayou Writers’ Group will host their annual conference on November 10th.  If you’re interested in a small, intimate conference in Lake Charles, Louisiana, then get more information and a list of speakers by clicking on this link.  Hope to see you there!

We voted today. We drove 10 hours to do so, because we can’t vote on November 2nd. We believe voting is one of our most important rights and responsibilities. I have family members who don’t vote, but they sure gripe about everything that happens in our country. I always wonder why they grumble when they’re willingly relinquishing their voice, their right to choose leaders and representatives. I guess it makes more sense to them than it does me. Sometimes we believe our vote isn't important. That's not true. Every vote counts.

I hope you go to the polls--rain or shine.

Have a great weekend!

I scanned Swamp Lily, and it looks great. Will get back to it after I finish getting my bedroom fit for human habitation. Can't wait to see you in November.
