Wow, summer break is almost over, and the Ooligan staff is gearing up for the coming school year.

First, I would like to thank Adam Salazar and the rest of the Design department for their excellent strides toward completing the interior design of We Belong in History over the last three months. Adam has done an excellent job making each poem really jump off the page.

Once the interior has been finalized and approved by our publisher, Abbey, the newly designed manuscript will be sent to our Editing department for another round of proofing.  Following this step, we will be ready to print our galleys.

In addition to these progressions, I look forward to working with the Marketing department to begin executing the wonderful collateral ideas they have come up with, as well as priming our staff for the William Stafford Centennial Celebrations scheduled to take place throughout the state.

Before I sign out on this post, I would like to welcome all of the new students who will be joining our program and this project in the fall. I know you will have as much fun as I’ve had working with the teachers and students behind We Belong in History.

Thanks for reading!
