Red Hen Press is on a big adventure

vavoom 085 Hen Press

Mother’s Day was great and Thursday we are going to San Francisco for Tobi’s graduation.  She will start at Red Hen Press as development associate on July 1st.  It is quite an adventure raising funds to bring her on as a permanent staff member.  This will change the course of the press and start us on a big story.  Red Hen’s future is permanent staff and a permanent building.  Literary buildings that I really like:  Poetry Center in Tuscon, the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, the Loft in Minneapolis, Poets House in NY and of course, the Annenberg Beach House.  There will be a literary home for Red Hen and other literary organizations in Los Angeles, a home for poetry, a place for strands of dreams, thickets of music.  Tobi is part of a new adventure for Red Hen Press. We are fund raising and working around the clock, but tomorrow night we will have tamales with the new city laureate of Los Angeles, Luis Rodriguez.
