Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Some writing-related highlights of the past week:
Catching up with other subscribers and contributors to Lilith at an evening gathering the magazine hosted in New York.
Being interviewed for a podcast for the very first time! And having that podcast be HevriaCast, which means that I got to meet Elad Nehorai “in real life” for the very first time, too.
Attending a terrific program that featured authors Matti Friedman and Nicole Krauss in conversation (and that evidently provided audiences the first opportunity to hear Krauss read publicly from her forthcoming novel).
Receiving an acceptance for a poem that will be published in time for the annual reading of the Torah portion Naso (early June). This is especially nice because of course, the week also brought some typical rejections. Stay tuned: I’ll share the poem when it’s available.
Two good reads: Dorit Rabinyan’s All the Rivers (trans. Jessica Cohen) and Richard Chess’s latest poetry collection, Love Nailed to the Doorpost.
More next time!
