My blog has chapters, what I call the categories. Choose the category you want in the index above or right here:
World Stories and Stories of the Great U.S Mosaic of Us Here I bring together reviews, reading lists, and author interviews of books from around the world and about the home countries of new Americans. And the books are exquisite.
School and Library Visits Here are stories about some of the programs and workshops I’ve presented. Each one is memorable. I always remember the stories children or adults write or tell because the stories become the fabric of what we are creating together.
Community Reading and Writing Projects I’ve organized various community writing projects, including The Bhutanese Folktale Project with ESL classes in Laconia, a New Hampshire Humanities project. These might give you ideas for a literacy project you’d like to do.
A Page Before Midnight – You Could Be a Writer! – Writing prompts for all ages
Writing for Children and Teens. Here I’m collecting essays and articles about writing for children and teens, distinct kinds of writing. Maria Popova describes picture books as “stories that tackle with elegant simplicity such complexities as uncertainty, loneliness, loss, and the cycle of life.” The posts include interviews with writers, craft skills such as approaches to writing a novel in verse, how I research.
