We get a lot of great material from emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, West Side Rag’s Tips and Ideas link. (Look up and to the left.) “My name is Kate Cenedella,” began a recent one. “I have lived here for years. Now retired, I was a public school reading teacher, taught at NYU, wrote educational materials published by Macmillan, as well as articles for small magazines in the past. I’ve written a poem entitled, ‘The Upper West Side,’ which everyone says belongs in the West Side Rag.”
Now, it is.

First I want to say I love it.

Perfect. Thank you. “Brevity is ……”

Wondrful encapsulation of our home(s)!
Awesome work, thank you Kate!
Yes. A day in the life. Wonderful.
Amazing! Well done!

There are many authors on the UWS (I for one). Maybe you do an article listing some of them and their work. Just a thought.
