Sometimes, Doppio focuses on content that elevates what we know content can be. Other times, we find those fantastic creations that take you out of our brain, if only for a few moments, so you can come back down to earth with a new perspective (or just a smile on your face).
This week's double shot of content greatness dips into both those pools, thanks to Steyer writer, Maria Renninger. She writes:
If you too have been transported in recent weeks by the poems of Amanda Gorman, the 2017 National Youth Poet Laureate, have I got a PDF for you. "Between Starshine and Clay," the 2020 National Youth Poet Anthology, showcases youth poets from across the United States. Their poems have me reading, rereading, and reflecting on "the experience of what it means to be human."
Happy (almost) Valentine's Day! Here's a gift to my fellow writers and anyone who gets creatively stuck sometimes. When a deadline's biting your ankles and more caffeine isn't helping, try Patatap.com. It's one of my favorite websites for a quick brain reset. I won't say anymore so as not to spoil the surprise... just click!
