When it does happen, I go for a walk, take a yoga class or take the dog to the park so my mind will process the story. (less)
Mindy Hardwick I love talking to readers about books. It is fun to hear how a reader sees a book I worked on for so long.

The release forms for the teen’s poems in juvenile detention have been steadily rolling in. These poems are from the workshop I did in June. I always love to see the release forms come back because unless we get these from parents and guardians, we are not allowed to publish their poems on the blog or elsewhere.


Please stop by and read our two newest poems:


One Last Chance


Fake Faces
