This certainly did not match my definition of spam; I expect that this is
because I usually associate spam with commercial endeavors rather than
presenting creative opportunities to individuals.
Should you want to submit some creative writing for publication, I know of
several sources and would be more than happy to assist.
I expect Pat is posting this information in order to inform people who do
fit into the projects guidelines of an opportunity.
