I’d sketched out a couple of posts I wanted to share here, but each reflected the downside of our recent warm weather: piles of very dirty snow. So in case you don’t follow my friend and Inkpotter Jackie Briggs Martin’s blog, here’s a link. Enjoy her rumination on bread baking and writing and then scroll down for a recap of the presentation she and some other fabulous writers (including Inkpotter Phyllis Root & Hamline grad and Inkpot regular Chris Heppermann) did at a recent conference on poetry and picture books. I wish I’d been there.

Meanwhile, anyone want to come up with a writing metaphor based on dirty snow?
