U.S. children's author-poet David Harrison will be featuring me as one of the guest readers (of his blog) in the very, very near future.
For those of you who do not know him, he is the author of nearly 80 children's books (about one-fifth which are children's poetry books). He is also the poet laureate of Drury University in Springfield, Missouri where he lives. (His term in this position was renewed in 2008).
Once I have the date as to when he will be posting my poem and photo on his blog, I will let you all know. To view his blog, which is called "Connecting the Dots", click here.
I think it is so generous and helpful that he is giving readers of his blog a chance to share their work.
David will be leading Somebody Ought to Write a Poem, a workshop in writing children's poetry, which takes place from Thursday, June 2nd - Sunday, June 5th in 2011. This session will be offered as one of the Highlights Foundation Founders Workshops which are hosted at the home of the founders of Highlights for Children near Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
