As part of a graduate class assignment, I'm asking students to tweet (280 characters or fewer) daily on Creative Nonfiction's twitter feed for the month of February on the subject of their own literacy experiences or their literacy teaching experiences. I have challenged myself to do the same. @CNFOnline selects from contributions to publish in their hardcopy magazine or on their twitter account under the title Tiny Truths. Today they selected one of my tweets to publish; it follows: "I'd read it somewhere: 'eyes like limpid pools.' I had no clue what 'limpid' meant, but it was poetry. I knew girls liked poems & Gloria was the girl for me so I wrote her a poem: 'something something your eyes are limpid pools.' After lunch that day she held my hand. #cnftweet"
