#52snapshots–Week 46

During the last week, one more rejection came in for my paternal grandfather essay. I haven’t sent it out widely, and that’s a good thing, because revision is certainly necessary. Memoirist and Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA instructor Sue William Silverman posted on Facebook about a new podcast interview of her by journalist Jonathan Small. Listening to her, I got some new ideas for revision.

In Progress

I’ve been invited to write a short piece about being told by university administrators and faculty that I was too old to pursue a PhD. I’ve also been writing about my father and our family home.

    I can’t believe you were told you are too old to pursue a PhD. Blatant age discrimination! I have a friend who was ordained as a rabbi last May. She is in her early seventies–started HUC rabbinical school in late sixties! Please post the piece when it’s finished.

  2. Looking forward to reading that piece on being told one is too old to go for a PhD.
    Meanwhile I call my novel in progress my PhD!

  3. Both are certainly rites of passage, Faigie!
