The Ann Arbor Chronicle has written a.. lovely farewell.. to Karl, and you can read more about him on his blog,.. There is No Gap.. A guest post from.. Kids Read Comics.. :.. Generations of kids have grown up reading and loving comics.. And beyond the sheer joy of comics is the fact that they can help turn kids into more active and engaged readers.. They also provide a model for young readers to explore and develop their own creativity.. But comics are no longer the mass medium they once were.. Far fewer kids are exposed to them today, and many of the comics they find are intended for older readers.. That’s where Kids Read Comics comes in!.. Our Kids Read Comics Celebration.. is a.. totally free event.. that unites kids, teens, parents, teachers and librarians with professional artists and writers from the comics and animation fields.. Our goal is to introduce kids to worlds of imagination while unlocking their creative impulses, and to serve that goal, the convention features:.. hands-on workshops.. panels and presentations for kids, families, and educators.. a chance for kids to meet and chat with comics and animation professionals.. the opportunity for kids to have their own art portfolios reviewed.. KRC also works throughout the year to promote comics and creativity for kids and teens.. We’re building a recommended reading list; gathering resources for parents, teachers and librarians; and organizing artists and writers who can bring presentations and workshops to libraries around the state of Michigan and beyond.. Kids Read Comics was founded by youth and teen librarian Edith Burney of Chelsea, cartoonist and educator Jerzy Drozd of Ann Arbor, comic shop owner Dan Merritt of Dearborn, and comic book writer Dan Mishkin of East Lansing..

Dazzling with Dialogue with Jeff Kass.. Human beings have the ability to communicate orally in more complex ways than any other creature on our planet.. It is what we do.. We talk to each other.. We lie and cajole and obfuscate and reflect and demand and joke.. Writing great dialogue can make any good story even better.. Writing poor dialogue can sink a good story and make a mediocre story dreadful.. What makes dialogue work well? What can we pay attention to as writers if want the speech of our characters to sing, zing, fling, swing and ring true? In this workshop, we will explore tricks of the dialogue trade, look at examples of writers who craft terrific dialogue and write some of our own.. Jeff Kass teachers Creative Writing and English Literature at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor MI and is the Literary Arts Director at Ann Arbor s Teen Center The Neutral Zone.. He is the author of the award-winning poetry chapbook Invisible Staircase; the award-winning essay chapbook From the Front of the Room; the one-man performance poetry show Wrestle the Great Fear; co-author of the teaching guidebook Underneath: The Archaeological Approach to Teaching Creative Writing; and author of the short story collection Knuckleheads, which was awarded Independent Publisher’s Gold Medal as Best Short Fiction Collection of 2011.. B.. The Unlikely Political Heart with Shira Erlichman.. Where one might expect rights and wrongs, a choosing-of-sides, or a firm position, we find instead in the work of Wislawa Szymborska and Aracelis Girmay an endless spaciousness, flexibility, and empathy.. Their work begs the question: Can one gaze upon a political issue as they would a starfish—with scientific wonder? Are intimate details the true dwellings of the truths of the universe? If, as Szymborska writes, “My identifying features are rapture and despair”—can we own this paradox, and shine The unlikely political heart is the soft spot in any story that cannot easily be summed up in a headline; it is the truth of our oneness, the intimacy of our struggles, and the curiosity of this unique situation we call life.. Shira Erlichman is a nationally acclaimed poet, musician, and artist.. A Pushcart Prize nominee who has toured the country with some of the nation s leading performers and writers, her prolific and unique style has brought her acclaim as one of the most original and compelling voices in performance poetry.. Her poetry has been featured in NARAL s National Pro-Choice campaign Free.. Will.. Power, as well as set to motion by the dancers of the Sound Dance Company.. Her award-winning music has appeared in multiple independent films, NPR and national TV.. She has shared stages with Ani Difranco, TuNe-YaRds, Coco Rosie, and Mirah.. She has been independently recording and releasing her records for over 10 years.. Born in Israel, raised in Massachusetts, she now lives in Brooklyn, NY in an indoor treehouse.. www.. shirae.. com.. C.. Why, Look at That Funny Little Kitten! And.. That.. One! with Patricia Smith.. How many of us sit creatively stunned at our keyboards updating our Facebook status, stalking Ebay auctions, guffawing at rollicking kittens, candy crushing, puzzling over the purpose of LinkedIn, checking sports scores, searching for a Words With Friends friend,  ...   their ears.. They hear the writer s voice talking to them from the page.. What that voice sounds like has everything to do with whether the reader will enjoy the work, keep reading it to the end, or ever want to read anything else by the writer.. That s why we need to write with our ears.. This workshop will explore how you can develop your own appealing, signature storytelling voices.. Bruce DeSilva is the author of the hard-boiled Mulligan crime novels.. The first,.. Rogue Island.. , won the Edgar and Macavity awards and was a finalist for the Anthony, Barry, and Shamus awards.. The second,.. Cliff Walk.. , was published to rave notices including starred reviews in.. Publishers Weekly.. Booklist.. The third,.. Providence Rag.. , will be released next March..

He also edited two Pulitzer finalists and helped edit a Pulitzer winner.. He reviews books for the AP and is a master’s thesis adviser at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.. Modest Means and Grand Ambitions with Scott Beal.. Charles Simic observes that any given moment contains the whole world in it.. In a classic essay Ezra Pound argues that by presenting “an intellectual and emotional complex in an instant of time,” a poetic image “gives that sense of sudden liberation; that sense of freedom from time limits and space limits; that sense of sudden growth.. “ In this multi-genre workshop, we will practice transforming an everyday object or experience into a nexus from which to explore inward and outward through space and time, to create a large and liberating vision of the world through the most modest of lenses.. Scott Beal’s poems have appeared recently in.. Muzzle.. Union Station.. Poemeleon.. , and.. museum of americana.. His poem “Things to Think About” won a Pushcart Prize in 2013..

He co-authored.. Jangle the Threads.. with Rachel McKibbens and Aracelis Girmay (Red Beard Press, 2010) and.. Underneath: The Archaeological Approach to Creative Writing.. with Jeff Kass (Red Beard Press, 2011).. His manuscript.. Wait Til You Have Real Problems.. was a 2012 finalist for the Lena-Miles Wever Todd Poetry Prize from Pleiades Press and the ABZ Poetry Prize from ABZ Press.. Jazz Poetics with Jessica Care Moore.. Poets write with an invisible soundtrack, sometimes leaving listeners or readers without the full musical reference of how the words or series of lines were written.. What music gets you in a writing place? Where do your words, your stories belong? What do they sound like? How can sound be manipulated on the page, and in performance with music.. In this workshop we will pull from poets Jayne Cortez, Amiri Baraka and others who have balanced, and perfected the Jazz aesthetic within their poems.. As a poet, I ve experimented and been inspired by several genres of music, but jazz has become a true homecoming for my work.. We will find the jazz poem in you, even if you ve never heard of John Coltrane.. Jessica Care moore is an internationally renowned poet/ publisher/ activist/ rock star/ playwright and actor.. She is a five-time Showtime at the Apollo winner; has featured on hip-hop mega-star, Nas Nastradamus album and was a returning star of Russell Simmon s HBO Series, Def Poetry Jam..
