Reach out and Touch Someone
First frost already, here; summer’s gone; and a post-equinoctial blood moon has manifested. The dark is rising—and another election season is upon us.
Due to increasing difficulties with e-mail delivery, future Star*Line mailings will now originate from email@example.com. Google may well be Evil Incarnate, but after changing over we heard from about 50 folks who had not been receiving Star*Line and SFPA e-mails using the previous addresses. Official SFPA announcements will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve had concerns about membership attrition. In actual numbers, SFPA is growing: the current membership is 273, along with a few Star*Line subscribers (hi, you guys!), but the turnover is greater than ideal. Although comparable to that of other poetry associations, we are relieved that some losses were inadvertent—a number of the expired have rejoined (welcome back!). If nothing else, growing membership (and much-appreciated advertisers) will continue to finance Star*Line’s color covers; beyond that, we hope to increase the payment rate, and enhance and add to the programs SFPA provides.
Introduce your mundane fellow poets, as well as non-poetic friends and acquaintances, to our other-dimensional portal. Offer them fairy fruit. Open the door into the hill and invite them in.
Here’s to the power of our imaginations,
— F.J. Bergmann
