We were sorry to hear that car trouble prevented
you from attending the Petaluma Poetry Walk.
I'm afraid that since you were unable to perform,
Poets & Writers will need the check for our portion
of your fee back. I wish we could pay you anyway,
since I know you incurred some expenses in trying
to get to the event, but unfortunately our program
can only support readings that take place.
When you get a chance, can you mail the check to
the address below?
Since you already cashed the check, I won't pursue
the issue. If you receive a Poets & Writers grant in
the future, and I hope you do, please keep in mind
that it is contingent on your reading or performing.
