Jone, I love your plan. And I look forward to your interviews, too! I am trying to see if I can get more writing done in April. I may be taking on too many opportunities but I also know that the idea of looking back at the old poems stuffed away and taking them in a new way or form or just a line could lead to something terrific. Happy Poetry Month. My favorite time of year.

I'm looking forward to reading the interviews and learning more about their verse novels. I love the idea of revising past poems for NPM.

I'm very excited about your NPM plans, Jone! It's been a while since I've done any interviews at TLD—I think I'm in withdrawal. ;)

Your "Revisit and Revise Redux is a great idea. Your author interview line up sounds great. Reading Starfish is on my list. Chris Barron's All of Me is on my list, too. I'm so behind on my reading. Thank you.

Is there a specific time you will do this? Will it be live or will it be taped if we are teaching and can watch it later?
