I have a back up of links I wanted to share with you!
First up are a set of two videos. If I presented these to my students, I’d ask, “Who is the audience for these? What is the topic? Point?” Do you recognize the song they are singing?”
Did you recognize the song yet? As the lyrics came to me (in English) I did a google and found it! I think I am right. Here is the link to the lyrics.
Here is a post about MFA’ers vs PhD’ers and since I have an MFA and toy with the idea of the PhD, I couldn’t help but read it!
And everyone needs a story to read. Even if it isn’t necessarily happy . . .
I talk often about reading your work out loud, and look here is someone else who agrees! (I even mention how much I love to read work out loud in an interview I did with Robert Lee Brewer over at Poetics Aside)
And another video? Sure! This is Pat Rivere-Seel reading at the Green Rice Art Gallery in September. I assigned the book she talks about in the video:
Next up is an essay I might use for a future class from a writer whom may have been the first “writer” I actually met back when I was a freshman in high school. And, even better, I also am working on an essay titled “When Did Math Begin to Suck” so here is a take on the trouble with math by Michael Parker, fiction writer.
I could have called this Video Wednesday but have to share this, which may be the final video for Shape of a Box under my direct stewardship. Still looking forward, in the near future, to announcing the new home for Shape. Warning! PG-13

Goodness what else do I have? Too many more, so since I added so many videos in here, we’ll just leave this as is and maybe I’ll put some more links up tomorrow with poem share and others on submitting on Friday as they would be theme appropriate.
