Thank you for your comments, Jane. I, too, think that the Poetry Jam was one of the highlights of the event. It had a real intimate quality to it, and I loved the poetry, music, and stories. It's too bad that everyone had to make a choice between the walking tour and the poetry jam. A lot of people came up to me on Sunday night, and told me that they wanted to go, but they had their hearts set on the walking tour.
And Lizzytsh (Elizabeth), thank you for detailing the spirit of what took place. You are a wonderful writer! By the way, my book is finally out. Since you really wanted to read it, I will mail you a copy: e-mail your address to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
I was going to continue to work on a report for the Poetry Jam, but I would really like if you could submit your report to Jarkko. You eloquently captured the magic and energy that was felt in the room, and I would really love if Jarkko posted your beautifully written description.
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well.
