Welcome to Day 21 of Drawing Into Poems, my daily drawing/seeing/writing study into poetry. You can read more about this month-long project here on my April 1 post. Feel free to read the books with me and pull out your own sketchbook and jewelry box full of metaphor too...
Day 21 - Hotel Lamp

Working on this lamp and reading some notes from teachers, I am wondering about the young readers of this blog and if any of you are experimenting with drawing to write. If you are, please comment to let me know. It would be an honor to feature some of your work here, to learn about the ways in which drawing is informing your writing or thinking.
If you did not stop by on Friday, do not miss the fourth grade history poems by Theresa Annello's students at Paul Road Elementary in the Gates Chili Central School District in Western New York.
Right now I am happy to be in San Antonio, Texas at the IRA convention. I will be signing FOREST on today and tomorrow, and am very excited to be presenting on a panel with Sylvia Vardell, Janet Wong, and Joyce Sidman on Monday as well. Then, the following weekend...I'm back to Texas for the TLA conference. Happy Poetry Month indeed!
On this coming Tuesday, I will be a guest of Wonderopolis for this month's #WonderChat celebrating poetry and wonder. This is the chat rescheduled from Monday evening, and I hope that you will be able to join us!
