Winter Goose Publishing

Heather Grace Stewart wrote her first poem at age five, inspired by falling down a lot while trying to figure skate. At the Arena was published in her school newsletter. From that moment on, Heather was hooked on writing. Heather’s poems have been published in Canadian literary journals, newspapers and magazines, nation-wide school textbooks, online journals, international print anthologies, and in the British small presses. She was awarded Queen’s University’s McIlquham Foundation Prize in English Poetry and the UK journal Various Artists’ Poet’s Poet Award. Her collection of poetry and photos, Leap (Graceful Publications, 2010), has been described as a “lovely lilt of language,” and, “a must for new and already hooked fans,” by reviewers; in August and September 2011, the ebook reached #3 in Poetry in the Canadian iBookstore. In addition, she has also written, Where the Butterflies Go, Carry on Dancing, Three Spaces, and more. Earlier this year, she was nominated as Author of the year by Muse in The Valley.

From the website: “A documentary by 371 Productions, As Goes Janesville catapults viewers to the front lines of America’s debate over the future of our middle class – a debate that has become a pitched battle over unions in the normally tranquil state of Wisconsin.”

Colin shares his experiences with us with this film and the importance of the As Goes Janesville project. As you read, you will see a list of all the recent publicity the film has received – it is even in the Milwaukee Film Festival! Congrats to Colin and all others that have put their effort into the film.

Mireya Mayor

Mireya Mayor, one of my biggest inspirations, can be described in many ways: conservationist, primatologist, National Geographic Explorer, and former NFL Cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins. In her book, Pink Boots and a Machete, she describes her constant love of animals as well as her transformation from being a cheerleader to earning a Ph.D in anthropology.

Life in New Zealand

Sarah was a college student in Wisconsin when she decided to study abroad in New Zealand for one semester. She quickly had to adjust to a brand new way of life and was kind enough to share some of her story for the blog. She continued familiar activites, such as rugby, but also tried many new things like zorbing (rolling down a hill in an orb); Sarah even picked up some new lingo and a slight accent. Enjoy reading!
