Mid-Week Field Notes

Three quick things this week:

  1. For two weeks now I have set aside an hour on Fridays to engage in collage. For me, it’s a good way to end the week and get into a different headspace for Shabbos.
  2. My Creative Nonfiction class in Lyric Essay began this week. As we study flash nonfiction, collage, braided, and “hermit crab” essays, I now realize my 2018 essay, “An Alphabetized View of My Mother’s Edward B. Shallow JHS Autograph Book, 1936,” published in The Museum of Americana, is an acrostic and therefore a lyric essay. FYI, Tell It Slant, Third Edition, by Jewish writer Brenda Miller and Suzanne Paola, explains the various forms of essays.
  3. The Whole Megillah will once again host the final stop of the annual Sydney Taylor Book Awards Blog Tour on February 12. The tour itself takes place from February 8-12. Stay tuned!

Best wishes for a safe, healthy, and productive 2021!
