Default Turner Cassity Tribute: call for submissions

Dear Eratosphereans,

The next issue of Able Muse will feature a tribute to Turner Cassity. Suzanne Doyle will be editing this special feature. In addition to Suzanne's prodigious virtues as a writer, she probably was as close a literary friend/confidante as Turner had.

You're all invited to submit for this feature. Suzanne will like you all to know that, "Here is your opportunity to publish a poem, essay, or reminiscence without having to fear a scathingly witty riposte from Turner in his next letter. Though I know we would all gladly suffer his rapier wit to have him back."

1. Send in your tribute submission through the regular Able Muse process for it as provided at http://www.ablemuse.com/submit-online .

2. All submission for the tribute should include the identifying mark "Cassity Tribute" in the subject field of the submission email or online form.

3. All submissions for the tribute should be received no later than October 15, 2009.

Suzanne will be expecting your top-shelf submission for this feature!

Cheers,

...Alex

What a wonderful idea, Alex!

My one little anecdote: In his cover letter which he returned with his comments on the sonnet bake-off finalists, Mr. Cassity mentioned that his favorite poem was a sonnet by Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey.

Though I did not know him personally, our brief connection was one I will always treasure.

Thanks, Cathy. I'll pass that information to Suzanne. Maybe she'll choose to include that sonnet.

Cheers,
...Alex
