Cassie Premo Steele, Columnist:  "I just published my 11th book! Wednesday is the world's first Facebook co-created book of poetry. It was published by unbound CONTENT, an independent, mother-owned publisher and contains all the poems I wrote in conjunction with over 300 Facebook friends each Wednesday since July 2010.  (All co-creators' names are listed after each poem.) The project expresses the truly collaborative possibilities of social networking for creative ends."
