Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick things.
1. 2020 events: My 2020 calendar is filling up.
This past week I’ve added a one-day course on book promotion that I’ll be teaching at Boston’s GrubStreet in early March. (I’ll also be leading an online version for Hidden Timber Books later that month.) More info here.
2. New interview: “Do you use humor as a conscious choice in poetry or do you find the poems evolve, or birth themselves, that way?” “Considering how polarizing a discussion about Israel can be, did speaking out loud about your support ever terrify you?” Over on the Tell Tell Poetry website, Adina Kopinsky’s questions—and my answers—cover a range of topics connected with Birthright: Poems. Click on over and check ’em out.
3. From the archive: Since it’s Hanukkah, it’s time to reach back into the archive and share “Fidelis,” my short story that was first featured on NPR in 2011 for that year’s “Hanukkah Lights” program. (Audio only.)
And since today is Christmas Day—warmest wishes to all who are celebrating it.
