i won 100 bucks from Word Riot for $ for readings, which was nice….if you’re reading this and you’re a writer who travels to and fro from events and readings, apply!
i liked this essay Flavia Stefani wrote about drinking wine with Cheryl Strayed—it’s classic Cheryl, and then it led me to watch Monica Lewinsky’s TedTalk on being publicly shamed.
next week i leave for the martha’s vineyard writers residency in edgartown…..along with these talented writers and friends:
and Cynthia Tassinari, who I grew up with in Spencertown.
never been to a residency OR to Martha’s Vineyard, v excited.
