Mid-Week Field Notes–April 27, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  1. More evidence arrived in the last week cementing my need to engage in revising my poetry. I’m devoting time in May to that. But good news! Amherst Writers & Artists literary magazine, Peregrine, accepted a short nonfiction piece.
  2. Amherst Writers & Artists dedicates the month of May to its Write Around the World fundraiser. For as little as a $10 donation, writers can choose from among dozens of opportunities to write with others around the world to timed prompts. I’m donating my time to leading three sessions focused on writing the past. See the event schedule.
  3. There’s still time to register for the JewishGen course, Crafting Stories from Your Family History. We meet on four consecutive Sundays (May 1, 8, 15, and 22) from 11 am to 1 pm ET via Zoom. For more information and to register, click here.
  4. Looking for a productivity tool? Since January, I’ve been using Michael Hyatt’s Full Focus Planner system. Though a bit pricey, it helps me keep all the flotsam and jetsam of my life organized. What I like best, I think, is that the planner provides space to set annual, quarterly, and weekly goals as well as to reflect on what’s working, what isn’t, what you should start/stop/continue/improve. Hence my self-direction toward poetry revision.
