Would you, by chance, be interested in sharing your writings on a new site put together mainly to help other writers gain more exposure and a wider audience?

If it sounds like something you might want to take part in, we would be glad to have your writing featured there. The link, if you’re interested in checking it out: http://sutterpress.wordpress.com/
