A few months ago I was made aware of a fundraising effort by a local pet charity involving poetry centered around pets – mainly cats and dogs. The idea was to have a collection of poetry published, and proceeds will go to help maintain Earl’s Heart Pet Food Pantry in nearby Anderson, Indiana. I submitted three pieces of prose centered around my experiences with furry, four-legged friends throughout my life, and I’m very excited that two of my three submissions were actually chosen to be included in the anthology! The collection was released today, on National Pet Day – because of course! Click the link or check out the Store page to order your copy today!

So I learned of a poetry project last month and was intrigued by the concept to say the least. The idea, aptly named Project 411, was to take contributions from as many poets/writers as possible, and compile a 411 line poem to represent the 411 miles of free-flowing freedom that is the Wabash River, an Indiana geographic icon. I whipped up my 5 best attempts at poetry and clicked on the submit button.
Well, the final product was released this week and I was excited to see my name listed in the participant’s section! The finished poem is filled with truly inspiring words, so I strongly encourage you to check it out when you have a few minutes. Make your guesses in the comments and see if you can single out my efforts!
