I was in Wisconsin last week, leading (with Lisa Bullard, my Mentors for Rent partner), the Redbery Writers’ Intensive. It was definitely intense, and we had a terrific time working with five fabulous writers. More on that in a later post. After the retreat, we stayed on for the 10th annual Northwoods Children’s Book Conference, and one of last year’s Writers’ Intensive attendees, Diana Randolph, was there. Diana has a lovely new poetry collection called Beacons of the Earth and Sky, which travels through the seasons of the year and includes one of her paintings with almost every poem. Here’s one that echoes a bit of the scenery from this year’s intensive!
The paper is white, despite the lavendar tint my phone appears to have given it! If you click on the book title’s link above, you can also read another poem from this collection:>)
The inspiring Linda Baie at TeacherDance has the?Poetry Friday roundup. Enjoy!
