The Reverend Vern Barnet, DMn

I am a "repeat free-lance" writer for The Star and not a member of The Star staff. I have no desk or even mailbox at The Star. I am almost never in the building. I have no "pull." While it is blasphemy to compare The Star to God, both are a mystery to me.
So my ability to refer you to the right person is limited. I don't even know if you should aim for a news or a feature writer or a columnist.
