Geplaatst op 19 april, 2018 om 14:25 Comments reacties (0)

On 17 April 2015, The Haiku Foundation inaugurated HaikuLife, a video project celebrating International Haiku Poetry Day. HaikuLife is both a program of haiku videos offered on International Haiku Poetry Day, and The Haiku Foundation’s video presentation format. HaikuLife includes videos in the HaikuLife format as well as other formats. Here is my contribution to HaikuLife 2018 "Life is Beautiful". Please visit the Haiku Foundation to enjoy more entries by talented poets and artists from around the world. www.thehaikufoundation.org

Author School Visit KSI Algarve

Geplaatst op 16 maart, 2018 om 20:05 Comments reacties (0)

Yesterday I had my first school visit at KSI Algarve, in Olhão. Writing can be a solitary business so it was fantastic to read my storybook to the children and get their feedback. I read the whole story and we had time for discussion afterwards. The children were enthusiastic and asked interesting questions. As an extra activity I took two puzzles of illustrations from the story—one more diffcult than the other. As the children´s age range is 6-11, it was perfect. They worked in two groups and finished the puzzles! The time passed so fast that I had to rush in the end to sign books. I would like to thank the teachers, Joana and Aoife, for their warm welcome and their help with my slide show and materials. I hope my presentation added value. A special thanks to the two young ladies who greeted me and helped me carry my things up to the classroom. Lastly, I thank the parents for buying a book. May it give them and their (child)ren much reading pleasure. I look forward to a follow-up visit during which I can talk about story writing.
