Folks:

The call has only been posted a few days, and the submissions are already coming in. I cannot tell you how great that feels ! THANK YOU to all who have entered their work already. There sure are A LOT of fun pieces out there, and it is wonderful to see so many artists responding to the call with images and their commentaries on the topic of humor.

One thing is certain: This is going to be a great book. So, please, keep the entries coming and spread the word. If you know of someone whose work or writing you think should be included, don't be shy, just let me know or point that artist/writer to the call.

I will keep you all updated as things progress.

Gratefully yours,
Brigitte
