I am going to be focusing on revising some of my essays for the next few weeks instead of creating new material. The seven-day revision program, designed and delivered by Emily Stoddard (of Voice and Vessel), an Amherst Writers & Authors facilitator, will require me to do some freewriting to fill in gaps. Time for that will be limited. I have to start prepping my courses for the fall, developing syllabi and loading up courses in a variety of learning management systems.
At least, though, I completed revisions to my essay about Avram Mendel Pryzant. It goes to my critique partner this week. Then I have to figure out where to send it.
While I’m attending the virtual International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies conference this week, something I haven’t engaged with since 2005, I hope to get new insights into DNA research and maybe some ideas for new essays. I am now a co-leader for two maternal ancestral towns in Poland for Jewish Records Indexing – Poland. Years back, I was a member of the Board of Directors.
