January is chugging along. Thank goodness. I'm not a fan of cold, dark days. They have their purpose. But, I can't help looking forward to spring.
Our Poetry Friday roundup host this week is Marcie Flinchum Atkins. I met Marcie and next week's host, Jan G. Annino, in 2016 at Highlights where I was way over my head in the practice of writing. However, Marcie, Jan and other writers were tremendously kind and helped me re-connect with a a daily practice of writing and weekly blogging.
Marcie's blog includes writing tips, encouragement, and ideas. Her advice on how to organize a writing life is beyond compare. Some of us lucky poets are on her poetry postcard mailing list. Please don't miss all those goodies when stopping by to drop your link this week.
But wait, there's more! Marcie is also a colleague, a fellow school librarian, full of amazing knowledge of books that really appeal to kids. She presented Filling the Library Shelves: What Librarians Look for in Books for their Collections with Jess Stork this week for SCBWI.
Seriously, if Marcie is not on your regular radar--fix that now.
