Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer


Back Home

I returned Sunday evening from an absolutely wonderful week in Vermont, where I was a first-time attendee at the Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) Postgraduate Writers Conference. This was one of my all-time best conference experiences. (And in a later post, or perhaps in a freelance piece if I can get any editor[s] interested, I’ll say more about why that’s so.)

For now, please enjoy this photo of some faculty books. Continue reading ›

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Tally-Ho!

As you’ll recall, my year of blogging for Poetry Has Value reached its end a number of months ago. But that doesn’t mean I can’t continue to share my poetry submission stats with you. So here’s the report for the month of July.

Also, if you’re new to these posts, it may be helpful for you to know that I work very hard to submit my work mainly to paying venues that don’t charge fees for journal/website publication. If you’re similarly looking for paying calls and contests that don’t charge submission fees, you’re always welcome to check my monthly newsletter (and with my weekly “Monday Markets” posts on this blog).

On with the July report: Continue reading ›

There’s been freelance writing. Preparation for next month’s writing conference (icymi: I’ll be attending as a student, to do some more work on my full-length poetry manuscript).

And now there’s this big announcement: Continue reading ›

Summer School!

I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to take an intensive Hebrew class. And this summer, I have that chance.

I’m taking a beginning course that meets three hours per day, four days per week, for a total of 15 sessions this month. (Four sessions down, 11 to go!) Continue reading ›

Tally-Ho!

As you’ll recall, my year of blogging for Poetry Has Value reached its end a number of months ago. But that doesn’t mean I can’t continue to share my poetry submission stats with you. So here’s the report for the month of June.

Also, if you’re new to these posts, it may be helpful for you to know that I work very hard to submit my work mainly to paying venues that don’t charge fees for journal/website publication. If you’re similarly looking for paying calls and contests that don’t charge submission fees, you’re always welcome to check my monthly newsletter (and with my weekly “Monday Markets” posts on this blog). And if you’d like to know more about how, generally speaking, I choose where to send my work, this Literary Hub essay remains a good standby.

On with the June report: Continue reading ›
