"The unknown, anonymous poet believed in herself so much that she sent out 1,986 submissions to literary journals from 1973 to 1978, all recorded on yellowed and tattered index cards.

the exhibit and mic are in Portland at 23 Sandy Gallery May 19 through June 25, 2011 : http://www.23sandy.com/index.html
