Reading and Writing Go Together

This is an excerpt from a poem by Kate Messner, who is becoming one of my favorite authors.

"Write for yourself.
Write because until you do,
You will never understand
What it is you mean to say
Or who you want to be.
Write because it makes you whole."

"Write because it matters."


"Read for yourself."
Read because it will show you who you are,
Who you want to be some day,
And who you need to understand.
Read because it will open doors
To college and opportunity, yes,
And better places still..."

For the entire poem go to
