Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress

A few professional highlights from the past week:NSSWM

1. A visit to the new Scarsdale Library Writers Center, where I had the honor of presenting the first lecture in the center’s Professional Series. The topic: “Mapping the Changing Publishing Marketplace.” Thanks so much to my gracious hosts and to the great crowd that turned out.

2. The arrival of my contributor copy of the 2014 Novel and Short Story Writers Market. (The volume includes my article on “Habits of Highly Successful Short-Story Writers,” with sage insights and advice from Roxane Gay, Michael Griffith, and Midge Raymond.)

3. Publication of my article, “10 Ways to Celebrate Jewish Book Month,” on The Forward‘s “Arty Semite” blog.

How about you? Anything you want to share from the past week or so?

    Well, okay, since you asked . . . I sold my first story! “Disappearing” will be published in Volume V of Spark: A Creative Anthology, scheduled for publication in spring, 2014.

    Also, about two weeks ago, I received notice that one of my stories, “Logistics,” came in second in a short story contest at On The Premises, an online journal. That one, my first fiction publication, will be included in issue #21, which will be posted on or about November 10.

    Since I’m a faithful reader of this blog, it’s especially nice to be able to share my big news here. Thanks, Erika!
