Many of us who read and write along with Tweetspeak are mothers. From celebration to heartache, beautiful unfoldings to loss, how do we make sense of the enormous part of our identity that is “motherhood”? This workshop will help us find a way, as we step into being “moms on poetry.”
What you do for poetry and literacy—and what poetry and literacy do for you. It’s a partnership at Tweetspeak. And it means more kindness, friendship, and simply rich living.
This is a novel for our time. Forget about how it will sometimes make you laugh more than you have in a while. Or make you love the characters and wish you could meet them at the corner store.

Carefully developed based on the successful “UCEful Model,” our latest book tackles a big need expressed by educators: climate teaching must somehow fit into their subject areas if it’s going to be taught. Enter “Earth to Poetry.”

T. S. Poetry Press is delighted to announce its new picture book, The Golden Dress: A Fairy Tale. One dress, sparkly and shimmery, grants wishes for a long, long time. Then the “emerald day” comes, and everything is about to change. Will the dress survive? That’s up to one girl, who needs to open her heart and her hands.
So many writers are inextricably tied to places they’ve written about. And so many places are waiting for their writers. Where is your place? In this workshop, through readings, activities and writings, you’ll explore where you’ve been and where you are, in ways that might help you to see where you’re going.
