Other November 2017 activities: I have completed revisions on my Holocaust novel in verse. I continue to work on civilian casualties in war for an educational publisher. I’m writing some food essays about Jewish Thanksgiving, matzoh balls, and Chinese food.
Coming up in December!
My Holocaust novel in verse goes to my agent today. I finish the food memoir class at Iota Conference with Sarah Einstein. I hope during December to also revise a Holocaust novella and work on two Holocaust-related academic journal articles. Plus, Cycle 8 of The Whole Megillah‘s online fiction class has just begun. While I’m on semester break, I also want to catch up on sending my work out into the world. Around December 31, I’ll be assessing the year’s activity and working on my 2018 goals.
And big news! I’ve just been accepted into the new PhD in Holocaust & Genocide Studies program at Gratz College outside Philadelphia. I start in the summer.
