As many of you know, in addition to writing poetry, I've got several projects on the burners including blogs, web sites and electronic newsletters. And thanks to all this juicy experience in "new media," I've been invited to participate in a panel on... you guessed it... "New Media and Publishing Creative Writing" at the American Independent Writers Fiction Writing Seminar on February 28, 2009, at George Mason University. Here's some of the salacious details:
