SFPA September 2022 Round-Up

No frost on any pumpkins in my neighborhood yet:

But this is only the September round-up of what SFPA’s membership’s been up to. So plenty of time for frost-ridden gourds in the future!

2 thoughts on “SFPA September 2022 Round-Up

  1. These lists are provided by the SFPA members but yes, it’s a big job (which I used to do and Mike does sooo much better!). But it’s wonderful for the visibility of our members.

    Which links were “less useful?” Were they broken? Or just links to print magazines? If the latter, there’s not much we can do about that if the poem hasn’t been published online.
