"Purify it, use it, keep it alive."
This is a writer's oiiiigauon to language, according To Willie
Morriccey, co-founder of the new Lincoln Writers' Cooperative.
The co-op is for peisons who now are not being paid tor their
writing but would like to seli their materiel for publication,
Morrisscy said. But membership is open to anyone interested in
writing, according to Dale Kennedy, co-op co-founder.
About seven people have shown an interest in the co-op,
Momssey 'expressed discontent with established publishing
"If you write something and want it published, you hove to
send it to people you've never s?en and never talked to, and it's
up to them to accept or reject your work," he said.
"Wc expect to handle our own printing, probably using a
member's. equipment, and manage business matters ourselves."
Morrissey and Kennedy said thay hope the co-op eventually
Vvtil develop into a nonprofit organization, eligible for
government funding and privata donations Any promts would go
to the individual authors, not the organi?ation, Morrissey S3id.
According to Morrisscy, there will be almost no restrictions on
the coup'j activities. He cited poetry leadings, discussion among
' vvrii-crr. iectcs and workshops as possible undertakings.
Morrisscy, a UN L custodian who attended San fiancisco State
Univrsty for three years, i?id the corn idea occurred to him
when he was typing and mimeojr2phu? li s own poetry for
Christmas presents. Pvper, stencils and usa of the printing
equipment turned out to bo more expensive than he had thought,
Using cooperative publishing, h-3 reasoned tiiat co-op members
oould publish their material as cheaply and attractively as
Persons interested in joining the co-op should contact
