Fall. Crisp air, shorter days, and the growing anxiety as you realize your procrastination is catching up with you.
Oh wait, that's just me? Well whether you're a procrastinator like me or get everything done early, few things inspire us to work on our writing projects like deadlines.

Vision + Voice is a project now led by Austin Community College that partners fantastic K - 12 poetry with talented ACC artists. All submitted poetry gets published on the site, but top poems from each grade level get paired with an artist from ACC who creates original artwork inspired by the poem. And then they turn it into a poster! And invite you to an awards banquet! And your English teach rejoices!
