Some very quick things:
- May is Jewish American Heritage Month. Many museums and other institutions are offering in-person and virtual events.
- I wrote about my maternal grandparents’ ketubah over the weekend. Many years ago, when I began my genealogical pursuit, my aunt gave it to me in an envelope. It was in small, torn pieces. I still haven’t put it together, but at least I put it in an archival-safe sleeve. What family documents might you have that could spark some writing?
- My biographical/novel in verse, Ethel’s Song, debuts on September 13, I’m working on publicity deliverables with my publicist and publisher.
- I thought I would engage in poetry revision this month, but I’m going to push it out until July when I think I have more “mindspace.”
- The summer is filled with conferences and workshops. I’m presenting at two conferences and was accepted into a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum faculty seminar (virtual) and the Kenyon Review Poetry Workshop (virtual). I’m also teaching an online summer course at the community college. What are your summer plans?
