Some very quick things:
- Today is the last day of my Tupelo 30/30 commitment. If so inclined, please read my work and donate to the cause of a literary journal.
- I’ve applied for and have been accepted into the Tupelo poetry manuscript virtual conference in January. I’m looking forward to revising my poems and learning more about ordering poems in a full-length manuscript.
- Do you have a child or grandchild interested in social justice? If so, Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems (Calkins Creek, 2022) could make a great gift!
- My short story, “The Diaries,” received my second Pushcart nomination for fiction. It was published this week in Kelsey Review.
- I’m excited to now be teaching in Kean University’s Master’s Program in Holocaust & Genocide Studies. This spring I’ll be teaching Holocaust Film and Literature. I’ll continue to teach elsewhere, including the Holocaust & Genocide Studies program at The College of New Jersey where I’ll be teaching Genocide & Human Rights and Resistance & Rescue during the Nazi Era this spring.
- New writing workshops for 2023 are open for registration from my website. These include Short Shrift: Writing the Short Story, Writing the Past, and Writing Family History.
- And last but not least, the December issue of Writing the Past goes out tomorrow, featuring an interview with memoirist Sarah Einstein. Sign up for your free subscription here.
