Gifts of Song

The next two weeks may be quiet in most of the Kidlitosphere…

But not here at the Tollbooth.

Through The Tollbooth will bring you gifts of hope and joy… our favorite songs for artistic inspiration, our favorite places to write- both in our real lives and in our dreams...

And on New Years Day, a cornucopia of writerly thanks and praise.

Words and music go together like… a song. Lots of writers have playlists- catalogs of songs that influenced or reflect a piece of writing.

At Vermont College, one advisor listens to this soundtrack before he writes a sad scene.

Music inspires all of us in the tollbooth, whether we actually write to it or not.

Tollboother Stephanie Greene is inspired by music with a purpose-

In this season of reflection, coming together, standing by each other and playing for change seems particularly appropriate.

Zu's Song

The Tollbooth's Zu Vincent is serene.

But the music that inspires her isn't always as calm as she is...

Her band of choice is BellX1   and their song is MY FIRST BORN FOR A SONG

Intense and exciting, just like our Zu!
