Happy spring (and almost summer) from all of us here at the Healing Muse! Our submission period for Volume 15 is now closed, and we’re really enjoying reading your prose and poetry and viewing your visual art submissions.
As we begin to prepare the proofs for the new edition of the journal, we’d like to solicit some feedback from you, our readers and contributors, about our “Readers’ Guide” feature.
For volumes 7-12 of the Muse we’ve provided discussion questions to accompany poems and essays. The aim of these guides is to encourage critical thinking and conversation in the classroom and among colleagues and friends surrounding the theme of each piece.
Have you ever used these guides in a course that you’re teaching, or to stimulate your thinking as you read The Healing Muse?
Even if you didn’t know we offered these guides, would you like to see a Readers’ Guide appear in Volume 15 when it publishes this fall?
We’d love to hear your thoughts if you’d like to share. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog post, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tell us what you think on Twitter (https://twitter.com/TheHealingMuse).
Thank you so much and stay tuned for more updates on production progress, reading events, and Muse contributor accomplishments!
