CYHMN? Better than a Spanish Inquisition! Especially at Teachers’ Conventions

Poets, teachers, coaches, malcontents, and persons of interest representing Can You Hear Me Now? have been asked to appear at all kinds of teachers’ conventions in the month of February. In a manner completely contrary to how no one ever expects a Spanish Inquisition*, you can expect us to be presenting information, strategies, writing exercises, ideas, experiences, and various other intellectual and poetic odds-and-ends at a teachers’ convention near you in the near future!
