Mid-Week Field Notes–August 3, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  • I finished the first draft of my next historical novel in verse and have sent it on to my poetry mentor and the historical subject matter expert. I hope to get feedback by mid-month so I can revise and get it to my agent around Labor Day for her review.
  • I found a developmental editor to work with on a middle-grade graphic novel. It’s something I wrote during my Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA program as prose, and after taking the Southampton Writers Conference workshop on graphic novels in 2020, I revised into a graphic novel script. It takes place in 1939 as the New York’s World’s Fair, “The World of Tomorrow,” opens.
  • Encouraged by my cohort in the Kenyon Review online poetry workshop, I’ve begun work on a full-length poetry manuscript. If anyone is interested in my Zoom readout to a poetry writing group, please let me know and I’ll send you the link.

Have a good week, everybody!
