Finishing Line Press News

Sad news. The Senior Editor of Finishing Line Press, Leah Maines, has suffered a stroke. I just saw this update on the FLP Facebook page:

"Finishing Line Press is sad to announce that Leah Maines has now passed the position of sr. editor to Christen Kincaid due to Leah suffering a stroke. If you would like to send Leah a card, etc... please send to Attn: Leah Maines, Finishing Line Press, 452 General John Payne Blvd., Georgetown, KY 40324. Christen Kincaid is now the new sr. editor of FLP and she is an excellent editor."

I don't have any other information about Leah's condition, but I thought it was good to repost this information to be sure people knew about it. I know a lot of poets who have chapbooks with FLP, so please spread the word. It would be nice if Leah got a bunch of cards. She's clearly given so much to the literary community.
