Children’s book author and Writers’ Program instructor April Halprin Wayland’s poetry was recently featured on United States Children’s Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt’s website, Poetryminute.org. The poem, “When Mom Plays Just for Me,” was originally published in Myra Cohn Livingston’s book, Poems for Mothers.
“After taking my first class at the Writers’ Program in the early 1980s, I felt I could go out into the world of children’s publishing and present myself as a professional. That’s saying a lot after just one class! And I continue to take classes here. As a student and an instructor, the teachers and writers I’ve met in these classes have become my tribe.”
