I’ve been so slammed that I forgot to mention the Hudson River Loft Series # 2. It was incredible. Unfortunately, it was so compelling that we forgot to take photos. But here’s a cool photo from the inaugural reading.
The Rumpus has the best writing prompts: Where I Write, Last Book I Loved, Last Poem I Loved, and Albums of Our Lives. A light bulb went off in my head when I thought, “What about Last City I Loved?” I inquired to Stephen Elliott about this, and he told me to do one. It’s published here.
I am reading at two off-site events at the Associated Writer’s Program in Chicago on March first. Details Below.
