let’s also not forget all those people that traveled to the events on their own dime. believe it or not, all poets will NOT do this. in all honesty, if we had that kind of money- those guys aren’t the ones we’d be paying. so for the broke-ass motherfuckers who make it happen, somehow, you guys rock…
here’s the thing about me and receipts. From the time I started this list to the time I finished, I found a pile of receipts under some other stuff on my desk of stuff and lots of other stuff. Dig? Looks like I started keeping them around the month of may.
Here’s what I had on hand anyway–
paper, tape and shit
75 (just what LU paid)
480 (Fugett paid)
ads, music, other fees
other stuff.. bought a toner printer, sent some adopt-a-poet money out, gave away a bunch of free lit, mailed out a shit ton of mailers.
if i forgot someone or something, i’m sorry. it’s a lot to keep track of.
and MANY THANKS!
