Former Seymour resident seeks submissions for book

As former Seymour resident Jean Matricaria looked at her church’s bulletin, an ad for a special needs event jumped out at her.
Ever since then, she has been seeing all sorts of fundraisers, events and foundations centered on helping the developmentally and intellectually disabled.
This was all the confirmation she says she needed to start her second book.

Her first book, “America’s Poetic Tribute,” commemorates the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York.
Her second book will honor and support those who have developmental and intellectual differences.

“I’m asking people to send me poems or short stories that are about people with special needs,” Matricaria said. “Hopefully, I would like them to be stories of inclusion or how our friends have excelled.”
All proceeds will go to The Rhythmic Arts Project (TRAP), Matricaria said, which addresses basic life skills concerning cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities.

Send submissions to Jean Matricaria, P.O. Box 199, Plantation, FL 33324. Include the submission, plus an email address or a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

The Rhythmic Arts Project is a 501 ( c ) 3 Non- Profit Organization. Visit
