Thrilled to learn that Piñata Moon won the Paterson Prize for Young People 2020 in the grades 7-12 category. It was refreshing to have some positive news amidst the challenging news of recent weeks. With COVID-19, I’m eager to find digital ways to offer workshops and connect with readers.
Check out the books from the winners in the younger grade categories:
I love doing writing workshops and I had a great time at Tanque Verde High School presenting Piñata Moon! I lead writing workshops as the artist in residence at Environmental Education Exchange: https://www.eeexchange.org/staff-overview-1
Special thanks to Carol Weiss for her support and encouragement
of this residency!
Email me if you’re interested in a hands-on writing workshop
based on the book.
Very excited to have won for the People Category at the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) annual photography competition. This is a photo of Chris Yazzie water testing at a windmill we stopped at on Navajo Nation. The work that Chris is doing about water quality and cleaning water on Navajo Nation is very inspiring. Thank you, Chris, for letting me document your important work. The announcement and other photos can be seen here: https://wrrc.arizona.edu/news/photo-contest-winners-announced
If you are in Tucson there will be a Chocolate Fest 2020 at the WRRC on February 13th at 3:30. They’ll be showing the 2020 photos and they’ll be plenty of chocolate to eat. Hope to see you there!
