Four quick things this week:
- I am amassing substantial content through my #52 snapshot project. Through this content, I’m gaining deeper insights into my family’s history and into writing essays, particularly lyric essays.
- I received word last week that my short story, “I, Divided” about a Holocaust survivor’s split personality has been accepted by a literary journal. The contract should come this week.
- My thanks to those of you who attended the William Paterson University panel on Monday night. I’m also hosting for the university’s MFA program a magazine panel on March 22, featuring Yona McDonough, fiction editor of Lilith; Maria Mazziotti Gillan, editor of Paterson Literary Review, and Jacqueline Vogtman, editor of Kelsey Review. Stay tuned!
- Have you been following the Sydney Taylor Book Awards Blog Tour? The Whole Megillah will post the final stop on Friday.
Stay healthy and safe!
