Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
How is it possibly December? Yowza. Last week, Irene Latham shared a lovely gift guide post, pairing gift ideas with her books. Love that…and stealing the idea. Here are some of my books from the past year or two, along with a few ideas to pair them with. But first–my poem–or two! These are from In the Middle of the Night, gorgeously illustrated by Angela Matteson and published by Wordsong. The book has plenty of raucous fun in it, but also a few more thoughtful poems :>)
|This one’s for you, writers and teachers!
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with poet-teacher Mary Lee Hahn. She’s the keeper of our Poetry Friday schedule, an amazing teacher, and also a birthday girl!
AND…Monday night is my For Love or Money free writing salon with Molly Beth Griffin. Want to know what a writer earns (sadly, probably not nearly as much as you thought!) and what are some things to consider as you try to make a living as a writer? Join me!
