    I am deeply grateful to learn of the workshop in August and will be sending in my application by February 1. It is inspiring and empowering to know of your commitment to LGBTQ family in encourage our writing and helping guide in our publishing. I attended the Silver Lake workshop on publishing end of spring and got a lot out of it, same with the week long event in October. We read our poems at West Hollywood Library. You all work hard and do good work. Thanks, Cassandra
