If you follow this blog regularly, you know that a group of students in Maryland have been using my writing system to create their short films.
Well, I have the distinct pleasure of attending the Silver Spring International (Lights, Camera, Literacy!) End-Of-Year Film Festival.
If you’re in the Silver Springs area and will be attending (info below), I hope you’ll say ‘hello.’
