    Hello all you lovely FAWMers!

    I was recently approached by the Alexandria Choral Society director about using one of my poems in a "crowd-sourced” commission project due out in May 2021. The theme of the work is social justice, and it is an absolute honor to have one of my poems chosen as an option for the final movement entitled "Refuge".

    In an effort to keep people engaged through the covid-19 crisis, they've been having people vote on various aspects of the project, lyrical text, musical style, even giving feedback to the composer live. The voters will also pick a local social justice organization in the Alexandria area to donate the proceeds to.

    The link below takes you to the site where you can learn more about the project, and vote on the 5th movement text. My poem "Space" is one of three options. If you feel so inclined, please listen to them all and vote for which one you like best. I am just thrilled to be considered at all. <3

    Love you all so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (I totally forgot to update the forum title! Hahahahaha!)

    Let us know the result!
    Do you want me to do my guaranteed good luck spell? It involves the ritual sacrifice of several small animals, though.
