Whew! It’s been a busy week here at the OWL office. On top of regular magazine work, I’m writing short stories for Max Finder Mystery Collected Casebook, Vol. 6 (in stores next spring!) and working on a presentation for the upcoming Word on the Street festival in Toronto. Does that sound like a lot? It feels like a lot!
Also, speaking of words on the street, I’ve got some related Reader Art of the Week for you. It comes to us from blog reader Maeesha, and it comes to us in the form of poetry. Check it out:
Words tell a story to me and my friends.
A vast inventory of beginnings and ends.
Words are amazing.
They should be for you
because you’re a child and children want to
learn with their hearts and learn with their minds.
Words are truly, simply divine.
Cool! One of my favourite English professors at the University of Victoria (go Vikes!) once told me that all writing is — in a way — about writing. Now I’m thinking he was just talking about Maeesha’s poem! I love it that Maeesha used her poetry to talk about the power of… poetry! Very cool.
Many thanks to Maeesha for sending in her poem. If you want to see your art featured in an upcoming installment of Reader Art of the Week, just send a drawing, poem, story, or anything else to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll try to post it ASAP!
Have a great weekend!
