ANNOUNCEMENT: Yesterday’s mail brought my copy of AND THE CROWD GOES WILD, the sterling, international collection of poets and their poems about sports. I’m delighted to be in the book and grateful to Carol-Ann Hoyte and Heidi Bee Roemer for creating this idea and bringing it to life.
A few weeks ago I sent a note to our friend, Rachel Heinrichs and asked her to give us the word for November. Rachel is a talented student, so guess what word she chose for us? TALENT. Okay. Deal with that this month. If we’re talented enough, I expect to see a bumper crop of fresh poems inspired by Rachel’s word. Go!
