A note from the editor

Help us Connect the Ducts!

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Editor’s Note to ask you to support our new Indiegogo campaign to modernize and redesign Ducts.org for June 2016! Today, stories don’t really get “published” until they get “connected” from one person to another, and shared and re-shared – more than ever, you the reader, are the publisher. With your help, we can update Ducts to help our storytellers reach more people than ever in a more compelling environment. Plus, we have tax-deductible status and sweet, sweet perks. Click here to contribute now and thanks for your support!
