    Whether writing about common objects or imaginary lands

    fishing

    or

    traveling

    in

    outer space the

    students we have

    had the

    pleasure

    of

    working

    with have joined

    us in

    approaching language

    as an adventure

    and

    poetry as the

    formula

    to the

    magic of words.

    We

    have

    taught

    them

    and learn

    from them

    in

    return.

    We would l ike

    to thank the teachers and

    administrators

    for allowing

    us to meet their

    students

    and

    for making

    us

    feel

    welcome. We also wish to

    thank

    the

    Arkansas Arts

    Council;

    Dr Don Ousterhout Director of Research a
