@tracisorell @hauntedcruz Absolutely...We could not have done this without many perspectives! <3 @hauntedcruz is a super hard worker and I loved his insight, too! :) <3
I've been writing on my porch with @LoreeGBurns all day, which makes this pretty much the best day ever. (Okay...we've done some chatting, too.)
@NAEmmanuele @mwritenow If you received an acceptance today, you are slated to present via the virtual #NCTE21 platform. We're in the process of determining which sessions will be live-in-the-platform, prerecorded scheduled, or on-demand, & plan to communicate these details to you by the end of August.
@kaokaliayang @tracisorell @LernerBooks What a beautiful picture!! I am at the airport . So excited these book treasures will be waiting for me.
If I had the courage of Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka, I would stay home today, possibly the remainder of the week. I need to unlearn the toxic "work until you drop" mantra I was taught, and learn to take care of myself first. I'm proud these ladies are my daughters role models.
Hey New Kid fans! Check out the New Kid sketchbook (A Place for Your Cartoons, Doodles, and Stories) which drops next week. And keep an eye out for the 450-piece New Kid jigsaw puzzle available Nov 9!
This is so well-said and identifies something that a lot of people are smoothing over in their girl power support messages: Simone is facing, very specifically, misogynoir. There are expectations on Black women that are deeply embedded in this country, and she is bucking them.
I know the instinct is to always go, "I stand with her as a fellow woman" but seriously, intersectional feminism requires that our remarks be specific. Yes, she is getting a lot of backlash as a woman, but SPECIFICALLY a young Black woman. Don't forget that.
The posting for the Open Rank MFA, Native American and Indigenous Poetry position at UMASS Amherst is now live. Deadline to apply is Oct. 29. I’m happy to answer questions about the position and the department. Please share widely.
After 7 years, it's time for #ReFoReMo to say goodbye. @kirsticall and I have loved every minute. We're thankful for @smile73777 @keila_dawson @CindySchrauben & @infowoman1's support! Celebrate 7 yrs w 7 posts: https://t.co/KjFxOBZjea @hauntedcruz
Congrats on 7 years of informing PB writers and creating a wonderful community! We will miss #ReFoReMo. TY, Carrie & Kirsti for keeping the web site FB, and files up for researchers.
Suni Lee: "We don't owe you gold. You're not the ones up here competing, we are." The way. I adore. This girl!
My husband has an unusual name. When he immigrated to the US, the kids his age dubbed him Frank so they didn’t have to pronounce his real name. He hated it. Today he read our son THE NAME JAR by @YangsookChoi & cried all the way thru it. You don’t know who needs your book.
