There is nothing better. Period. Read. Write. Learn.
I am pleased to have had two poems published here, in Tuck Magazine.
I am particularly happy to be published here since Tuck Magazine tries to bring social justice issues to light, while helping its writers publish. Perhaps you want to get a more global look at issues; Tuck Magazine does that.
Where have you been submitting? How is writing and publishing going for you?
Thanks for reading!
I felt sick reading this article: Chicago public schools scandals
Behind the scandal are kids, living, breathing kids in schools. Heartbreaking that kids are denied needed special ed. services and that all are denied clean schools. Oh, let’s not forget the safety aspect of sexual abuse scandals! Are we creating a generation of traumatized youth from our schools, when schools should be a safe place?
Read more if you can stomach it. If I feel sick just reading this, what is happening to the students, faculty, and staff that work in these schools?
Such a sad news story that up to 4,600+ people killed in Puerto Rico. From the article:
The new number is based on household surveys and surpasses the official count of 64
Hurricane Maria and its chaotic aftermath in Puerto Rico led to at least 4,645 deaths, according to a new estimate based on household surveys. That’s thousands more than the 64 official storm-related deaths counted from death certificates.
The Category 5 storm hit the U.S. Caribbean territory on September 20, 2017, bringing down trees, houses and the electricity system. From then until December 31, the death rate rose 62 percent compared with the same time period in 2016, researchers report online May 29 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
This time a poem is personal. Arm teachers? No, so much could go wrong….and there is the personal cost to arming someone who is supposed to nurture and teach…
Anyway, I am pleased to learn that my poem “Teach to Kill” was published here today: Tuck Magazine
Pleased to learn a poem I recently wrote will be published shortly. Details to follow.
