Abstract

On March 11, 2020, less than twenty-four hours before boarding the plane to attend the Michigan Council of Teachers of English 2020 Think Spring Conference, we found ourselves cancelling our flights in response to a global pandemic. We had looked forward to a robust conference—and the discussion, discovery, and connections that would accompany it.
