Rivertalk, a poetry journal published by the Ojai Center for the Arts, is accepting poetry and photography for its spring 1996 issue. "We don't set a theme," said editor Joan Raymund. "We're looking for good, modern poetry." Any subject matter is worthy, she said, as long as the poems are "vivid, substantive and contemporary." Poets may submit up to five works. They must be typed, with a title, and a name, address and telephone number in the upper right corner.

Everyone of us can remember at least one occasion when a book discovered or an event attended in the library enriched our lives. It's pay-back time.

The brief publicity blurb says "Sunburst" is a Harper Monogram historical romance by Suzanne Ellison of Fillmore, who has written more than a dozen books for Harlequin, with sales of almost 1 million. Sounds pretty romantic all around--books about love that sell in the millions, an author to be envied. Ellison, a wife and mother, has written and published 22 books in seven years. All it takes is 10 to 12 hours of writing a day, and aching eyes and hands.

Take note of two local publications soliciting works. Rivertalk, a poetry anthology published by the Ojai Center for the Arts, seeks poetry and photography for the spring 1997 issue.
