  1. Can we make suggestions for links for next week? I just saw the orphan flash contest and remembered this Ted Talks speech from my favorite poet, Lemn Sissay. So I thought I’d share this link from a writer/poet (National Poetry month, y’all!) about the tribulations of being an orphan and how it’s more common in literature than we realize (Cinderella, Moses, Superman, Jane Eyre, Harry Potter–all orphans!) and how we shouldn’t look at them with pity but respect! It’s a little slice of greatness – and something we should keep in mind if writing about parentless youth!
