Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.) I’m late getting this together, but I have three big things to share!
1) Thank you! A huge thank you to all of you who sent both donations and good wishes to my friends Steve and Vicki Palmquist last week. I am so grateful for your generosity–truly. And thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes, too :>)
2) Save the date for a virtual book launch! On Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 7pm Central Time, illustrator Angela Matteson and I will be joining Red Balloon Bookshop for a launch party for If You Want to Knit Some Mittens. And there will be drawings for two prizes. I hope you’ll come! More details and a registration link soon!
3) I just got my copy of 10.10, edited and compiled by Poetry Friday’s own Bridget Magee. I’m so excited to read everyone’s poems! I’m always grateful for anthology invitations, as they spur me on to write poems I wouldn’t otherwise have written. I had a blast playing around with ten in this poem.
Don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Jama Rattigan, whose beautiful posts always make me hungry!
