Teachers: Call for Submissions

Teaching from the Heart seeks to provide a platform for teachers and educators to speak wholeheartedly about the challenges and possibilities that teachers encounter every day in their work. We ask you to submit a brief 250-word commentary describing how a particular poem inspires you, informs your work, or provides sustenance as you negotiate the complex challenges at the center your vocation. Importantly, this project is not just seeking poems about teaching and the classroom but poems on any topic that intersects with you think about your life and work as a teacher.

This book is will be a brand-new edition modeled on our best-selling Teaching with Fire: Poetry that Sustains the Courage to Teach (2003). For samples of this book and information about the submission process, please visit: If you have questions, please email

The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2013. We hope you will consider submitting an essay and poem for the book. Please also forward this notice on to other colleagues that might be interested in this project.
