Every now and then we like to give a shout out to those who have been doing the extraordinary. This posts theme has to do with English study and travel.
Matt & Ellie Neinow are taking the year traveling the globe. Currently they are in New Zealand Wwooofing - working on organic farms. Next their travels will take them to South America, and after that? Where ever the wind takes them.
On top of that Matt was featured in the June issue of Canoe & Kayak magazine. He recently had his poem “Six Ways of Looking at the Moon,” selected by Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Natasha Trethewey, for inclusion in the Best New Poets 2007 anthology.
