This is for my friend Angela, who is stranded in Washington DC and anyone else facing the prospect of Christmas away from their families.

I have just had the distressing news that the Catholic literary magazine Dappled Things has had a very poor response to its fundraising campaign and may have to close if it does not receive enough financial support. Dappled Things is a unique magazine, offering a platform to Catholic writers who would otherwise be unable to get their poetry and short stories into print, but it is even more than that. I have experienced firsthand how dedicated and supportive the editorial staff at Dappled Things are, I am sure I would have given up altogether by now if it were not for the constructive criticism and encouragement I have had from this wonderful team, far beyond the call of duty. There is such a need to nurture and promote Catholic writing; we Catholics have a rich literary heritage and I long to see the emergence of a new generation of Catholic authors who will continue this proud tradition. If you care about Catholic literature, please consider donating or subscribing to Dappled Things.
