Good news

Poking my head up from my RA-induced haze to share a bit of good news with you.

My poem, "A Place to Share", is going to be published in Dare To Dream . . . Change the World (working title), a forthcoming anthology from publisher Kane Miller edited by Jill Corcoran. The anthology is going to contain a mix of biographical and inspirational poems. My poem is biographical, and related to the founders of YouTube. My friend Laura Purdie Salas wrote an inspirational poem on the same topic, and the pair of poems will be included in the anthology along with the work of 28 other poets - and just wait until you see the final line-up of people in this anthology. (List not yet public, I'm afraid, but trust me when I say that it's AWESOME, and so is the potential illustrator!)

I am extremely excited and more than a little humbled to be included with so many rock stars from the world of children's poetry.

Thank you, Lorraine - just wait until you see the rest of the lineup. *swoon*

The health thing is a bit of a drag, I must say. Grr.

So sorry to hear the RA is kicking up, Kelly. Sending (((hugs))), along with big congratulations on the poem! Definite proof of something the rest of us already knew: You're a rock star, too.
