From Treanor Baring, Past Website Content Editor:
It has been my pleasure to work with many talented, competent and thoughtful women at NLAPW at the National Level. Thank you to all of the poets, writers, artists and members in music who have shared your talent with others through this blog. It has been a great honor to serve as the website editor for the NLAPW and to expand the audience for your work through the website and Pen Women Press.
I do expect that the new editors will continue to care as much about our mission and getting YOUR work out there as I have. I look forward to their contributions with the anticipation that they will maintain the quality, integrity and professionalism that we’ve initiated.
