Dear AP Litters:
On Monday, we will have an incredible opportunity to Skype with Clint Smith, spoken-poetry champion, author of Counting Descent, doctoral candidate at Harvard, new father, and all around awesome human.
I am beyond excited. You should be, too. What I've found is there are so many artists and writers out there who are generous and kind and willing to help you grow as young people and thinkers.
To prepare for our chat, please submit in the comments below at least TWO potential questions for our Skype session. I'll sort through them and tag the question askers via Remind and then first thing Monday afternoon.
Otherwise, you've got some Slaughterhouse Five reading and Thought Plots to take care of. And I recommend you also find something to do that makes you happy -- take a walk, cook a meal, go visit a grandparent or family member, spend some time alone, pick a pumpkin -- follow your bliss. I know I will be. ;-)
All the best, guys, and keep thinking, exploring, and working hard.
P.S. Make sure to follow #aplit18 on Twitter. I'm tweeting contemporary poems that would be good fodder for your next blog post coming up in. October.
