  1. Lauren, I attended the MHA Prism Awards last and was not only impressed by all the poems you shared, but mesmerized by the last one. I am the publishing editor of an on-line holistic magazine, What If?. The magazine is a project of The Council of Families for Children, a non-profit advocacy, education, and support organization. The magazine has a readership of more than 30,000, is a monthly periodical begun last May, and features a local artist each month. Additionally, we have a feature, “The Poetry Corner” in each issue. We would love to feature in November’s issue, including several poems. Alternatively, we invite you to be a regular contributor to the Poetry Corner. You can find the magazine at http://www.whatifmedia.org and the Council at http://www.counciloffamilies.org. Please let me know if you would be interested in participating in our project.

    Again, congratulations on your award! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
