I am one of very few fellows selected this year for the renowned Kennesaw Mountain Writing Project! After many years of hoping and wishing, I am strapped into my seat waiting for (not take off but) lift off. Ebullient feelings fill every nook and corner of my free-spirited, inquisitive, and absorbent intellect. I thought I was the Queen of WAC, but I am simmering in self-discovery of the rarest kind. Gurus jar my brain with unique writing-across-curriculum activities in the socio-scientific realm, “writing with brush strokes,” contributive poetry, and so on. The summer is just beginning. I am gripping my seat for this space shuttle ride unlike any!
