Thank you Poetry Soup and members

Blog Posted:7/15/2018 8:28:00 AM


Again, I must express my gratitude to this wonderful forum, Poetry Soup and all its members who have supported and encouraged me along the way.

It is because of you and your support, that I have come to a place in life I would never have dreamed possible.

Some of my poems have been used as examples on various online teaching forums.  Others have been published in magazines and books.  Some have been made into videos by high school students in the US and posted on Utube as a school project. One was used as the fourth movement in a classical musical composition.

Recently (July 3, 2018),  I received a request from, ABIVA PUBLISHING HOUSE INC.,(A LEADING PUBLISHER OF TEXTBOOKS) in the Philippines specializing in instructional materials for basic and secondary education asking permission to publish my personification poem, SNOWFLAKE.

This poem will be included as part of a new textbook designed for teaching and learning English grammar and literature in junior high school as follows:

Book title:  Journeys Through Language and Literature
Grade Level:  Grade 9  
Print run: 10,000
Language:  English
Duration:  3-5 years
Distribution:  Philippines
Target release date:  January 2019

None of this would have happened had it not been for the day I discovered Poetry Soup and found the courage to post one of my poems never knowing at the time the incredible journey  that awaited me.
