Whew! Alot going on! 🙂
First, we are creating a place through The National Writing Project, titled Youth Voices, thanks to Paul Allison, where students can publish their voices! I would invite anyone to let me know if they would due interested in being a part, and I will put under a page titled American School Foundation and friends…of all things creative! 🙂 This is an example of a post from a student on Youth Voices – Amazing!
My life has changed dramatically in growing from the opportunities of writing, sharing, and creating opportunities for others to contribute their art and skills! This August, will be a preview to the Novel Writing that occurs in National Writing Month in November – but there is a Nano summer camp – to prep for the November version – check it out! – I am a registered camper for August – so maybe we can share cabins! 🙂 I have not gone bad to the novel I wrote in November 2011 because I do not have my cord for my hard drive here – it is in DE – but when I make my journey north, I will edit it of the first time since writing it in November, and will being to post the chapters to see what you think, and looks like get ready for a novel continuation in August!
Our international magazine has been published! We will be ready to market this first foray into all things art and international soon – we have a Twitter page, then Repentino on Facebook, progressing on a Repentino blog to be released soon, and soon to be online version with a subscription to the magazine! After recently being CSPA accepted, Columbia Scholastic Press Association, we will get a critique on the magazine and 2012 -2013 will be superb!
We will have Repentino representation at the Ofi Press Mexico Literary Reading this Wednesday, 7:30 PM with a few of our awesome ASF students presenting their works thanks to the Condesa literary night set up in the VFW!
Finally – educators should check out these offerings at P2PU – an amazing array of opportunities that are available for the summer – they will invigorate you!
As we are rebuilding and redefining the infrastructure of the Repentino magazine, I have to say, “The Future is so bright, I Have to Wear Shades!”
P.S. A shout to my colleague Natalie Dorfeld who has been accepted to teach at Florida Institute of Technology!! Woooooooooo hoooooooo! I am not sure there is a more deserving person for this, VERY excited for her!
