Quote

"I’d like to counter that diversity in children’s media—and in young adult fantasy—is important because it’s for kids. Children and teens know that books aren’t real, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t also internalizing the messages. When diverse peoples and cultures aren’t a part of these fantasy worlds, young readers are being repeatedly told that they can’t have adventures like the characters because they don’t look the part, that they are less important than imaginary creatures. They’re being repeatedly told that their exclusion is the norm."

from More Elves of Color! Why Diversity in YA Fantasy Matters by Lori M. Lee (via bookriot)

Please read the whole post. It’s important.

(via yahighway)

I actually think this is a great idea, as long as it is done by people of color. The diversity in creative spaces needs to be at the creative level, not just the character level.

The Princess Bride (1987)

Has it got any sports in it?
Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…
Doesn’t sound too bad. I’ll try to stay awake.

we need more movies about books.

Any teachers out there who would be interested in doing an interview with WriteWorld for an upcoming back-to-school series on teachers’ expectations of writing in the classroom?

It doesn’t matter what subject you teach or at what level you teach it. We want to hear from you!

Any takers?

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;                         But O heart! heart! heart!                            O the bleeding drops of red,                               Where on the deck my Captain lies,                                  Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,

The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,

The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,

While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;

                         But O heart! heart! heart!

                            O the bleeding drops of red,

                               Where on the deck my Captain lies,

                                  Fallen cold and dead.
