Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:


  1. I met up with a writer pal and fellow adjunct English professor this week to exchange and critique our writing. She read my 25 pages of a new contemporary YA novel in verse–and liked it! She said the voice is strong. I am writing one new poem a week in response to prompts from my poetry mentor. It may take a while, but at least I’m writing.
  2. A new Facebook group for Jewish Children’s Lit mavens started this week, organized by Susan Kusel and Heidi Rabinowitz, Association of Jewish Libraries leaders.
  3. How about we set aside one Sunday to send our work out into the world, an activity I tend to neglect during the academic semester? We can keep in touch through The Whole Megillah Facebook page. How does July 7 sound? Please comment below if interested.

That’s it for this week. Have a good one.
