April in the Homeschool Alliance: Poetry
Your kids get to join us in the Alliance for our Poetry Workshop in April!
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater is a children’s poet who has become quite a friend to Brave Writer and me. She’s excited to share with you all in April about how poems are teachers to help you get more comfortable using poetry in your homeschool and encouraging your kids to write it!
Amy is especially delightful (truly a homeschooler in disguise). She and her husband live on huge acreage and spend copious amounts of time in nature, taking notes, observing, and sketching. A kindred spirit in so many ways (check out our Poetry Teatime interview and podcast with Amy)!

Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s book, Every Day Birds, is my personal favorite, but I also love her newly released: Dreaming of You. Amy is sharing with us a reading from her book Poems are Teachers as well.
The Alliance is hosting a webinar with Amy on Thursday, April 5 at 7:00 PM EST.
If you’re a member of the Homeschool Alliance, you’ll automatically be able to join us. We’ll also post the replay if you can’t make it live.
You’ll also have access to all the previous webinars of the last three years (Just sayin’—Josh MacNeill of Neurologic was last month and he gives you the keys to the kingdom for how to help your kids to Just Calm Down and Focus!).
What have you got to lose? Join us!
One more fun thing!
Our Brave Writer staff is putting together a list of favorite poems just for YOU (the list is amazing!). We’ll be discussing poetry all month and I promise to lower the bar so you’ll experience success.
If poetry is the teensiest bit intimidating for you, or you just plain HATE it, this is the right month to try the Alliance.
Can’t wait to meet you!
