I'm pretty busy these days and about to get even busier. Add to that my lack of interest in participating in anything resembling a literature scene... But I hope your venture goes well, I'll be bookmarking it.
Also, on a more personal note, I'm always up for meeting new people, especially if they aren't really new but are in fact people whose journals I've read and whose hometowns are my hometowns and whose now live in the same place where I live. I see you deleted yr facebook. Drop me an email if you have an event you really want people to show up to, or if you are bored and want to shoot the shit. firstname.lastname@example.org
