Big ORU "thank you" to LTUE organizer Charlene Harmon and English teacher Elizabeth Woods for their respective roles in letting the ORU soul-touch LTUE just a little bit this coming weekend. Charlene accepted a package and agreed introduce the ORU to fellow teachers interested in Sci Fi and creative engagement. Among other things, she has copies of flyers promoting Brianna's quest for illustrations for the "Flight Cycle" online novella. Elizabeth Woods donated her script for dramatizing a passage of Courtesan Prince for reader's theatre, which I have passed along to Charlene for the use or inspiration of other teachers with creative writing classes. (See Elizabeth in action at a reader's theatre event in 2002 based on the ORU novella Mekan'stan. Sadly, no pictures for the later one.)

What's LTUE? Notice about it from RFF list is reproduced below to answer that question.
