As we reported last week, Mary Oliver is seriously ill. Thanks to this tip from GalleyCat we now know that "Julie L. Moore and Julie Brooks Barbour and have started a blog where friends readers and poets can share 'how they have been influenced or changed by her work.'”

Here are details for the blog:

“If you would like to take part in this project, please email a post to one of us, no longer than 200 words, at jbsundries(at)yahoo(dot)com or moorej(at)cedarville(dot)edu. Post your note as in-line text; email attachments will not be read. Posts should be written in letter form, beginning with ‘Dear Mary’”
