Wordamour is excited to announce that Anthony Haynes, her editor at Professional and Higher, actually asked for her opinion on the cover art for Re-thinking Creative Writing in Higher Education. They have commissioned a series from a lovely artist, Rika Newcombe which you can see here and which I understand will be used for the covers for the whole creative writing series. Wordamour will do a reveal when the cover has been selected, but in my opinion, they can’t really go wrong with Newcombe’s work.
You know you’re busy when you promise yourself you can write a blog post if you get a certain amount done. Right about now, I’m consumed with preparation for our writing project’s hosting of the NWP Rural Sites Network 2011 Conference coming up in a few weeks. But it’s chugging along quite well, so that’s good news.
In other news, Anthony Hayne of Professional and Higher has also started a website/blog called creativewritingstudies.wordpress.com which he envisions as a way for writers and creative writing studies enthusiasts (especially the board and those intensively involved with Professional and Higher) to post news, calls for papers and other important information. Check it out, better yet, comment or contribute.
Coming soon, another Golden Baguette Award winner! Who will it be?
