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.


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.

      Thank you so much, Harriet! I should probably clarify: they won’t all be published at the same time. (One won’t be out until September, in fact.) But they were all accepted this week, and that’s equally amazing to me!

    I ordered Book of Clouds after reading your review.

    And congratulations on having the four poems accepted for publication.
