Reading Matters. Read Aloud 15: If you wait, it’s too late.

I am so excited to continue my work as a Read Aloud 15 partner. The reality is that 15 minutes of reading aloud daily, starting at birth, can change the face of education in our country.
Early literacy opens up educational opportunity for a lifetime. It’s a cause I feel passionately about & I’m thrilled to be among those selected to spread this message, with the help of my site collegereadycoach.com. It feels like a gift (to me) actually, to be able to do this kind of work.
Our next campaign kicks off in March, but I’m available ~any time~ to provide materials, (handouts, bookmarks, etc) and/or to talk with you or your organization about the importance of reading aloud to kids…Every Child, Every Day.

Writing Like a Turtle

This is what I tell my writing students...

Every writer knows, that to make progress you have to take risks. To tell the truth and really leave it all on the page, you will feel vulnerable, like the turtle sticking it’s neck out.

Take risks.

But that’s the only way you’re going to get anywhere. Inch by inch. Little by little. Keep moving forward and you’ll get there. Your readers want truth and risk and all those messy bits of life on the page.

Happy Sunday to my collegereadycoach.com tribe.
xo, Lisa
