Poetry Friday: Beth Kephart

Over at readergirlz, we've introduced Beth Kephart as our new Author in Residence. So she's hanging out with us for 4 months, and she's also posting a blog/vlog entry once a month. Here's her first. I'm sharing it for Poetry Friday because the woman's speech itself is poetic. Listen and be challenged and inspired. Thank you, Beth!

Today's roundup is over at The Boy Reader.

Wow. I think I needed to hear this today, although in regard to my dissertation specifically, which I'd not thought about in those terms. Vulnerability, I agree, is linked to authenticity and to powerful writing. Maybe that's true of academic writing, too...Thanks for sharing this!
