At last our book has reached the end of its publishing journey. Sometime this week it will be available on Amazon. First it will appear in paperback. After that will come the Kindle edition.
The title is Leaping off into Space: A Travel Guide to Risk and the Imagination. Below is the description of the book that will be posted on Amazon.
“You are invited to travel on a journey exploring the interconnected landscapes of risk and the imagination. The vehicle that propels you through this journey is poetry. The journey is toward the world of imagination and includes how that world connects to our expanding sense of self as we grow and develop. This is not just any imagination, but yours and that of the children traveling with you, whether they are your own children or your students. This journey is facilitated by the included writing lessons for classroom or home use. Each lesson contains all you need to conduct a poetry workshop that increases writing skills and helps the writer feel safe expressing their own unique poetic creativity.”
When it finally is official, we will let you know.
