The Butler Little Theatre is seeking submissions of original adaptations of Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol". The script selected will receive a full stage, eight performance run as the holiday production in Butler Little Theatre's 2007-2008 season. More info here.

Poets and Writers undertakes a Q & A with Ed Ochester, editor of the Pitt Poetry series:
I remember—and this goes back a number of years—when we published Ted Kooser. It amazed some friends of mine on the East Coast that there was this guy in Nebraska who was writing good poems, and I think a lot of them at the time didn't really believe that people could be living there and doing good work.
Kooser, BTW will be at Pittsburgh's International Poetry Forum on April 11.

Michael Wurster and poet and editor Judith R. Robinson are assembling an anthology of work by area poets and photographers, entitled Along These Rivers. Submit up to four poems on any subject; send two copies of each. Photographers can submit up to four black-and-white prints (as close to 8" x 10" as possible), also on any subject. All applicants must include their contact info and an SASE. The deadline for submitting both poems and photos is June 1, 2007. Address: Quadrant Publishing, LLC, 4712 Bayard St., Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Questions? 412-681-3018.
