SignWriting List
May 30, 2010

Hi Sandy!
Great to see you on the SignWriting List again. And thank you for your BSL web site, which provides us with two poems written in BSL:

Two BSL Poems written in SignWriting
http://bsltext.org/poems/

I will write to get permission from the author of the poem "Whales" to print the poem for the workshop participants only - thanks for informing me to do that, Sandy -

And are you living in Wales, UK now? Can you attend the SignWriting workshop in Southport later this year?

Since you know SignWriting, and are Deaf yourself as well, I bet the participants would enjoy meeting you, and it would enhance the workshop -

Suzanne Pach is teaching the workshop -

And Maureen Doyle is the director who requested the workshop in Southport -

Maureen's contact information is on their web site:
