Mid-Week Field Notes–December 29, 2021

Some very quick things:

  1. My 2021 exploration into #52snapshots has ended. I still have plenty of material to work with and plan to tackle revisions through my Writing Family History generative writing sessions that start January 9.
  2. One of the snapshots, “Black Taffeta,” appeared in the Kelsey Review, a literary magazine published by Mercer County Community College.
  3. I’ve done my year-end writing assessment! I plan to continue to write memoir/creative nonfiction essays and poetry while also working on, most importantly, my latest novel in verse. I’ll lean into as many Amherst Writers sessions as possible. I also plan to send out my work once a month. I’ve started an online group to do this.
  4. There are still spaces in the StoryScapes memoir writing workshop that starts January 8 from 11 am to 1 pm, Eastern. We’ll be writing to timed prompts and providing feedback using the Amherst Writers & Artists method about what’s strong and memorable. Please comment below if interested in either workshop.
  5. Save the date: January 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Join me in a commemorative event via Zoom (5 pm ET) at the Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center, where we’ll be hosting a panel of former hidden children from Belgium, the Netherlands, and France.
