Dear friends, I have some beautifully exciting news for you today! I am truly honoured to be teaming up with the writers at Glass Kite Anthology this summer as a mentor for the GKA 2016 Summer Writing Studio. This is only the second year of the studio, but I heard utterly incredible feedback from mentors + mentees alike last summer - and what a lovely thing it is to be part of this community.
(Perhaps very old readers of the blog will remember one of my earliest publications - my poem "Midnight Letters" is in GKA's second issue. How wonderful to have the opportunity to work with them once more!)
The summer writing studio is a five week long program in which mentors in prose and poetry work intensively with one to three mentees. It is geared towards high school & middle school writers and taught mainly by young writers as well - and believe me when I say that all of the mentors this year (including one of my dearest friends, Christina Im) are kind, passionate, and talented beyond words.
I will be teaching poetry at the studio, and I am enormously excited to get started! If you are interested in participating - either in poetry or prose - I would highly recommend applying. I have no doubt that the program will prove to be enormously illuminating - not to mention so much fun.
If you are interested in applying, GKA is accepting applications until August 7th. It is completely free.
I know that many of you have gotten in touch with me in search of writing advice & feedback & lessons & mentorship - and this is a wondrous opportunity to receive one-on-one mentoring from me and other gorgeous writers.
We will talk poetry & learn from each other & grow & grow & grow & grow & grow.
Let us make magic together, my soft ones. I cannot wait to see you there.
