Hi. This request is probably going to sound a little strange, but I need to find an "authority" in the field of writing and/or poetry that could be a reference for me on an application I'm filling out. This person must, also, be "familiar with me and my work" (I'll familiarize you).
If you happen to be or know someone that fits this description (that you wouldn't mind bugging on my behalf and that wouldn't mind being bugged), your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you!
