Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:

  1. I received two invitations to teach: One to teach undergrad Intro to Creative Writing and one to teach undergrad Literature of the Holocaust at two different universities. Problem: They were both for Tuesday/Thursday at 2 pm when I’m already teaching a history course. I had to turn them down. But then Lit of the Holocaust was offered as an online option and I said yes. I’ve been working feverishly on a syllabus and getting onboarded. Class starts Monday.
  2. I have signed up for writing classes and mentorships to help me complete two manuscripts this year. I’m also working on a new short story that I think wants to become a novel.
  3. My beta reader gave me comments on my previously failed middle-grade historical. I am earmarking the revision for 2021.

What are  you planning on writing this year? Classes at The Whole Megillah (new fiction cycle starting January 26) and Writing Chai are still available. Please contact me below for more information.

  1. Hi Barb, Mazal tov on your teaching! I am so far behind on email, etc. Are you working with “writer2writer?” What’s happening with your verse novel? What’re your Whole Megillah courses? Is it too late for Chai? xo, Joanie

    • Hi, Joanie,
      Thanks so much! I did Writer2Writer once and did not find it useful at all. My MG verse novel has been edited and I’m waiting to see the cover. It’s due out Spring 2021. My YA verse novel is a work in progress. The latest set of Whole Megillah courses include Putting the Past on the Page and It Could Be Verse (poetry). Both are five weeks long, $250. Writing Chai gets prompts the 18th of each month. Since you’ve missed Sep, Oct, Nov, and 18 days of prompts in Dec, you need pay only $10. To pay, send to “friend” at barbarakrasner(at)yahoo(dot)com.
