Poetry panel at upcoming NCTE conference

 

Are you heading to the annual convention of the National Council of Teachers of English in Las Vegas next week? It's one of my favorite events and I haven't missed it in nearly 30 years. Unfortunately, I have to miss this one. Darn it! So my illustrious presentation panel is moving on without me. But as you can see (above) our session is in excellent hands with an amazing group of talented poets. Note the day and time: Saturday, Nov. 17 at 4:15-5:30pm. And just in case you cannot attend-- just like me-- we're hoping to have some video snippets of the session to share with you later on this blog, so stay tuned. 


Meanwhile, head on over to Think, Kid, Think for the weekly Poetry Friday get-together.

I can't wait to see everyone!! But we will miss you, Sylvia! So happy you will share video. I will bring my flip camera and try to capture some, too. I tried to record a student reciting one of Laura's poems with my new cell phone, but no luck on that. Need a tutorial on the phone. (Quality is blurry and I can't send it...but on the phone she is absolutely darling! Calling All Readers!)

AHHH! What a wonderful panel! How I wish I could hop on a plane for this event, which can't possibly be anything but amazing. PLEASE upload videos!

Oh, this is going to be such a rich and wonderful panel! Wish I could be there in person as well - but I'll send good vibes and wishes and look forward to hearing all about it.

Sending continued good wishes to you, too, Sylvia!

Thanks, dear friends! I know it will be a wonderful Saturday afternoon and I'll be there in spirit. For those of us who can't be there in person, I do hope you will share some video footage. Thanks again for carrying on without me! E-HUGS all around!
