    • Hello…..Two of my books have been published by Codhill Press: a memoir “Tapping the Source…tap dance stories, theory and practice,” which has sold almost 2000 copies, and a book of poems “Circular Vibrations.” I use both of these books in my performances of “Spoken Word and Tap Rhythms.” I would like to participate in your conference either as presenter and participant. I have two new works looking for an agent or am editor: a novella and audial theater play. I would like more information about your conference. Thank you. Brenda Bufalino
