Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Back from #AWP17

Like thousands of other writers, I journeyed to our nation’s capital this past week for the latest gathering of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP). And, I suspect also like many others, I’m still “processing” those days.

One definite highlight for me, however, was Thursday evening’s “off-site” event at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. (Fun fact: This panel event originated as an AWP session proposal. Which AWP rejected. Just another reminder that rejection doesn’t necessarily signal “the end.”)

I’m waiting for the video of “Memory Transferred: Voices from the Descendants of Destruction and Displacement” to be posted to the Museum’s YouTube channel. In the meantime, though, I can share one of the event’s photos. Continue reading ›

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Newly Published Poem

I’m happy to present a poem, “A Walker in the Post-Blizzard City,” that’s now up in The Wild Word‘s “Winter”-themed issue.

Yes, this is one of the newly accepted poems I alluded to last week. (And yes, the title alludes to Alfred Kazin’s famous A Walker in the City.)

More interesting, on the level of craft, is that I first drafted this poem about a year ago in response to a prompt in Martha Silano and Kelli Agodon’s The Daily Poet: Day-by-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice. (It was the January 11 prompt, “Surprise City.”) I continue to recommend this craft book highly! Continue reading ›

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Some Reflections on #ResistanceLit

ICYMI: The National Book Critics Circle blog published a piece of mine last week. It’s part of an ongoing series on “Resistance Lit,” and the post spotlights “resistance-lit” qualities in Heirlooms, stories by my friend Rachel Hall.

Q&A

Then it was my turn to be spotlighted! Many thanks to Joanne Intrator for inviting me to answer some questions for her New York-Berlin Bridge project. (Among the pleasures: I was able to dig back and revive a review I wrote for Fiction Writers Review some years ago about a Berlin-set novel by Chloe Aridjis.)

Unexpected (and Atypical) Litmag News

And I cannot believe that I am able to write this next bit: I have had four poems accepted for publication since the last midweek update! Four poems to be published in three journals. You can be sure that I’ll keep you posted.
