Mid-Week Field Notes–September 7, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  • I have learned my lesson! I now type in generative writing sessions rather than handwrite in a notebook. The reason? It takes so many hours to type up the dozens of poems for my novels in verse. I’m working on a proposal for a new one, and during COVID, I must have written more than a hundred poems for it in three notebooks. The good news is that I’ve already generated a lot of content. Whether I keep it is another matter.
  • I will be giving a reading from Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems at a book birthday Zoom launch with my alma mater, the Vermont College of Fine Arts, on October 19, 8 pm ET. Stay tuned!
  • I’ll be offering two free workshops for people who have not written with me in my workshops. One is Writing from and about Photographs, Tuesday, October 18, 7-9 pm ET, and the other is Writing Family History, Tuesday, October 25, 7-9 pm ET. If interested, please send an email to barbaradkrasner(at)gmail(dot)com.
  • I am thinking of occasionally blogging on The Whole Megillah about my pursuit of family history, since it often inspires my writing. If you think this would be a good idea, please comment below.

Have a good week, everybody!
