I'll be in conversation with Celine Keating about her new novel, The Stark Beauty of Last Things, at the Barrington Public Library on November 3 at 6:30pm.
Grateful to the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts for a 2022 Merit Fellowship in Fiction. I'll use the funds for a self-directed retreat to finish the collection of stories I'm currenly working on.
I was lucky enough to spend the last week at the Millay Colony in Austerlitz, NY, for a wintertide retreat. This is an opportunity for writers to go to Millay during the "off" season and just write! It was a peaceful and productive time. One of the new stories I'm writing is about a trip Edna St. Vincent Millay and her husband took to Sanibel Island, FL, in 1936, so this was the perfect place to work on it.
I'm pleased to offer several writing workshops in 2021! I know a lot of us are "Zoomed out," but I've also found that connecting in this forum has strengthened my creativity over the last several months. Writing with other writers, whether in person or online, is still one of the practices that keeps me at my desk. Take a look at the workshops and see if one might work for you.
