preface, explanation, what have you

 This is a contemporary commonplace book.

This is a dialogue produced by a community of writers, talking about community and writers. We talk about the Writers House as a physical entity with color... with a garden, a kitchen, a space. We talk about the House as a hub of people who write, and people who think, argue, sing, cook, eat and get drunk together. We talk about making each other think; we talk about missing each other.

I have tried to place these poems and letters and pieces of prose in such a way to make this dialogue as loud as possible.

Listen to its whispers?
