Matthew and I opened Reflection Press at the end of 2009. We had NO IDEA what we were doing. We had heard tale and had seen a few things around the edges and then BOOM! we were doing it!
We published Claiming Face and Gender Now in 2010. When we realized what we had done and how easy and accessible it was, we immediately started teaching everything we knew, and held our first Radical & Relevant Children’s Books mini conference in 2012. (you can download the publishing packet here)
Since then we’ve published I See Peace and Yo Veo La Paz, and now we’re mentor/publishing our annual anthology in The Heart of It course taught through our online School of the Free Mind, opened in 2013.
Write Now! Make Books feels like the logical extension of what we do. It’s time to share FREE RESOURCES FOR OUR KIDS to come into VOICE and MAKE BOOKS now!
We have lots more rolling around our imaginations, but one thing we know for sure, it will involve sharing what we know and lifting up our kids in POWER!
The revolution is NOW–YOU ARE THE REVOLUTION.
Welcome to installment 6 of Write Now! Make Books. It’s about bringing the story and the art together in a handmade book!
It’s about sharing your VOICE, your fabulous SELF with the world. We need to hear you! We need to see you! We need you!
I always say this to the kids I play with, I say this to everyone who knows the shape of silence!
WE NEED EVERYONE’S VOICE TO BE A WHOLE PEOPLE
tu eres mi otro yo
sending you a large hug on your journey! xomaya
