Sandy Asher announces some good news.
The American Alliance for Theatre and Education just reprinted my article about Good Company Theatre for All Ages in its latest ezine issue of INCITE/INSIGHT. The original article is permanently posted on the Dramatic Publishing website at http://www.dramaticpublishing.com .

Here’s more good news from Carol-Ann Hoyte.
I’ve learned that School Magazine Australia has bought another one of my poems (“Footprints”). They bought another one of my poems (“Umbrellas”) back in January.
This 94-year-old publication is Australia’s premier literary magazine for kids. Submissions must be approved by three or four editors in order to be accepted for publication. It feels great to be able to reach the high standards of this acclaimed and legendary magazine.
It is such an honour to have my work appear in the same magazine which has published the work of folks like Carol Ann Duffy who is now the U.K.’s poet laureate (and first woman one at that!).
I just received this note from Facebook friend, Donna Marie Merritt.
Donna Marie writes, “After 15 children’s books for the educational market, my first book of poetry for adults is out. JOB LOSS, A JOURNEY IN POETRY is about the emotional turmoil that results from losing your job. This book is the first in a new series called Poetry for Tough Times. My second book is due out this spring (CANCER, A CAREGIVER’S VIEW) and the third will hopefully be released in 2012. All are from personal experience.
I am hoping not only to introduce people to my poetry, but also to help others who are going through a difficult patch. If you know anyone who might be interested, I would be grateful if you could pass this info along.”
