I just received my copy of News from the Raven: Essays from Sam Houston State University on Medieval and Renaissance Thought. I don’t have an essay in this book, but I designed the cover for my friend Dr. Darcy Hill.

The book is a compilation of essays that were presented last year at the Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Culture and Thought that was hosted at Sam Houston State University. It has essays on literature, architecture, culture, music, rhetoric and composition. Several of my friends have essays published here. I keep flipping through the pages admiring what a good job Anna Jennings did with the interior layout. The publishers, Cambridge Scholars, seemed demanding when we were working with them, but the result is really nice.

This game was developed to present at the 2014 Computers & Writing 2014 at Washington State University. The presentation was entitled “Gamification in the English 1302 Classroom,” and it was written by Kim Davis and Jake Gebhardt. The game was designed to fit into a freshman composition class. The hope is that it will interest students and help them to engage more completely in the learning process. For more information about this game, visit http://grammarize.org/c-w-2014-at-wsu/.

One of my poems and two of my stories made it into the Sam Houston State Review for 2014.

Of course I would be remiss if I did not mention that my fellow contributors have also shared some worthy poetry and fiction.

Access that HERE.
