Fall, Already?

I love the fall to be honest. It’s just been astonishingly busy and challenging. I’m enrolled in a teacher certification/Master of Arts in Teaching program which is quite demanding on top of still being a first-year classroom teacher. So I haven’t been able to write any poetry for quite a while. Next semester I won’t be a student myself, so I’m hoping to do a lot of writing.

Happily, questions for water was named a Distinguished Favorite in the social-political poetry category by Big Apple Book Awards. More about that soon.

Both Sam and I will be reading and discussing poetry on November 9th, 6pm, Hereford Public Library in northern Baltimore County. Stop in if you’re nearby. It’s both odd and wonderful to be able to do this in person again!
