So I'm teaching this summer at Berkeley with my old friend Camille Dungy, my old classmate Tony Swofford, my old friend & classmate Shane Book, and my new BFFs (though they don't know it), Daniel Alarcón and Justin Torres! Fun!

Have you heard? Thread Makes Blanket Press, in conjunction with VONA, will publish a perfect-bound anthology of writing from past VONA (Voices of Our Nations) participants. Work can be previously published as long as author can obtain permissions. Proceeds will go to support VONA's summer workshops for writers of color. Deadline is March 30th. Get on it! http://threadmakesblanket.submishmash.com/submit

The editors of the groundbreaking anthology on people of color and nature, The Colors of Nature: Culture, Identity, and the Natural World (Milkweed Editions, 2011), are looking for contributions for a higher education online teaching guide with lesson ideas, questions, prompts, and resources that teachers of literature, environmental studies, multicultural studies, American Studies, geography, and other pertinent fields would find valuable for teaching the book.
