Mid-Week Field Notes–November 30, 2022

Field Notes

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.

Happy Writing!
