I want to thank Carolyn Richards and Sarah Lentini of the Arts Council of Rochester for first giving me the idea of creating this site. Also Joe Flaherty of Writers & Books, Thom Ward and Nora Jones of BOA Editions, and Penelope Robinson of Barnes & Noble, for their input in its initial stages.
I'd also like to express my appreciation to Camy Sorbello, Jonathan Sherwood, Jonathan Rich, Nancy Kress, Nick DiChario, Norm Davis, Tim Wright, T. M. Wright, Anna Thor, and many other friends, students, and writers in the Rochester community for their assistance, their kindness and their example.
