Mid-Week Field Notes–December 8, 2021

Some very quick things:

  1. I’m very much enjoying the new issue of the Jewish Book Council’s Paper Brigade literary journal. I had no idea Bambi was really an allegory about antisemitism. Or about the first female Jewish rabbi, who was a Mizrahi from the seventeenth century. So much to discover in this issue.
  2. Starting this Friday, I am making a commitment to send out my literary work once a month. I have pulled together a group of writers, poets and memoirists, to join me. What are your plans to send out your work?
  3. I’ve done my year-end writing assessment and am committing to some poetry and memoir workshops in 2022, probably late in the year. I may have to postpone my long-awaited trip to my grandmother’s shtetl in western Ukraine now that Russian troops are lining up. As part of a course I took at Creative Nonfiction a couple of years ago, I wrote an “imagined” journey there. I may just have to use that to complete my genealogical memoir.
  4. Last call to register December 8 to commemorate the UN and human rights via Zoom, sponsored by the Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center.
