Your homework for this week is to read both stories aloud several times and be ready for your middle-school student-critics to hear them. They should take no longer than seven minutes to read. Prepare yourself to read without preamble; everything necessary to understand and enjoy the story should be in the text or suggested by the text and the action.
Please write drafts of FB posts and Tweets to accompany each blog or story. Writing these will also prepare you to introduce your stories to the students. Later, they will allow you to introduce each other's work at your reading.
Here are this week's consult times as I have them booked. Please check for errors or let me know, after consulting open times on the Doodle, if you need to change. Not booked? Please choose a time. Thanks. We'll meet in my office in FBH. Look forward to talking to all of you. Do bring problems. This is absolutely about solving them.
If you can, please give me a day's notice to read new work and text me to alert me you've sent it. We'll talk about non-fiction, fiction, and tiny puppet fiction pieces, in the order of urgency, as you choose it. Also scheduling workshop discussion time for those who are not on the schedule.
