Mid-Week Field Notes–June 29, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  1. I have a Zoom session with my agent later this week to discuss my writing career. I feel like I’m standing at the crossroads, deciding which way to go.
  2. In the Kenyon Review online poetry workshop, I learned ways to dramatically revise a poem and the importance of a poem’s title. I’m now putting together a new chapbook and am eager to jump into revision. I highly recommend Kenyon Review workshops!
  3. My doctors have advised me to stay put and not travel for the foreseeable future to give my body time to heal from all the trauma of the last year. Among other things, that gives me more time to write and lead workshops. I am dedicating July to my new novel in verse.
  4. The new issue of Writing the Past will arrive on July 1 (featuring an interview with memoirist Rebecca McClanahan, author of Tribal Knot) with dates and times of workshops, including a one-time workshop on Writing from and about Photographs. Subscribe to the newsletter and register for workshops at my website.

Have a good week!
