Kooser in Golden

Heather C. and I spent a lovely Saturday with former Poet Laureate Ted Kooser at the CLAS fall writing retreat in Golden. No line dancing, but lots of good writing, reading and words of wisdom from the Nebraska poet, not to mention some socializing with folks from the Denver Writing Project, the Rocky Mountain Writing Project and the Colorado Writing Project.

Got me thinking again about trying to have a combined WP event (cocktail party?) at the CLAS conference in March. Whaddya think, Bud?

"You're good enough, you're smart enough, and gosh darn it - people like you." - Who said it?

I'm looking for a few good (wo)men to present to Preston Junior High School faculty on one of our many inservice days. We're trying to incorporate writing across the curriculum and what better way to get science and math writing than with a real, live human! Anyone interested in presenting either their research from CSUWP or sharing writing prompts that they use in the classroom? I'm sure we could cover substitute pay and maybe even throw in a sassy, little coffee (not literally)... let me know!
