Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: Five Not-So-Easy Pieces
Right now I am tracking the publication of five new pieces that should be out in the world this spring. They’re all freelance–by which I mean that I have been or will be paid for all of them–and they’re all nonfiction. And, with the exception of one “quickie,” which seemed to write itself, they were each quite challenging.
Two have already been published. One (the one that seemed to write itself) looks at stories and poems about writing for the ReadLearnWrite website. The second is a review of Aharon Appelfeld’s Suddenly, Love (trans. Jeffrey M. Green) for the Los Angeles-based Jewish Journal.
A third should be showing up in the mail any day. And I can let you in on it because someone else already has:
Proof of the spring @Missouri_Review issue looks good! Poems by Kai Carlson-Wee, David Lee, Kerry Hardie. Essay/review by @erikadreifus

The final two are the mysteries. I haven’t yet found out exactly when they’ll appear. Suffice to say that I’m quite excited about them (each will mark my first byline with the associated publication). And I look forward to sharing them with you!
