What an honor for Journey of Dreams to be featured on Vamos a Leer.
Oswego’s Living Writer Series was an honor–fun to prepare and present.
Thanks again to Zara Larsen of the Larsen Group for inviting me to share about my work.
“A piece highlighting some of the poetry books I use in workshops.”>http://wordplay.sites.arizona.edu/node/176
Catching the pieces, putting them in place — what a year it’s going to be!
The Hopi Foundation’s Owl & Panther project will kick off with a Poets & Writers granted POETRY OF WITNESS workshop with Cynthia Hogue of ASU and will finish up with an art show at Tucson Museum of Art.
Word Journeys Amphi High School Mentors will help me facilitate literacy related workshops at Woods Memorial Library.
I’m honored to be part of Oswego State University of New York’s Living Writers Series in October.
And in April, Journey of Dreams will be Vamos A Leer’s reading selection!
