Some days ago I received a copy of the email below. Clearly Kamau feels alone and isolated in his struggle. Equally clearly words of support and comfort are precisely that. I hope with this quick weblog to make a space where people can send suggestions of concrete assistance (as well as of solidarity). An email address has been established which will be checked every day (to avoid this site filling with junk). Messages will be transferred to this site so that (a) Kamau can check them and (b) correspondents can contact one another if that seems helpful. I’ve been in touch with Kamau who thinks this useful. Any messages from him will be posted here. Anyone who wishes to link to this site is welcome to: not everyone who might wish to help is on a Poetry Listserve.
The email address is:firstname.lastname@example.org
