New Editors and Support Committee

Since May, a new support committee has formed to re-imagine and re-create the Literary Update newsletter and website. As you all know, Tim Nonn has stepped in as editor of the e-mail newsletter. He has set up a g-mail account especially for Literary Update communications. Please send all future announcements to this address:

Jo-Anne Rosen and Tim will be co-editing the Sonoma County Literary Update blog, which functions as the Update’s Internet “home.” Other members of the committee are helping re-design the blog, adding new elements,including a regular feature by the Sonoma County Poet Laureate.

The Literary Update Support Committee is open to everyone. The next meeting is 7 PM on Wednesday, August 11, at the Glaser Center: 547 Mendocino Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA 95401-5241.
