Welcome to my writing life . . .

Here are the big things that are happening:

  • Right now, I’m on sabbatical from teaching at John Jay College, so I’m writing a novel series in which Kristin grows up grappling with questions of worth and of learning and of love.

  • I’m also putting together a poetry chapbook, which I’ll be pitching to small presses soon.

  • In January, I’ll present a workshop to the West Conn MFA that’s all about keeping writing fun.

  • In June, I’ll be traveling to Ireland to present my talk on Writing, Technology, and Creativity at the Arts and Society Conference in Galway.

  • And, if you’d like see more of what I’ve done, you can go to my publications and events pages.

But, of course, the real writing life isn’t about these big events. Rather, it’s about constant, quiet contemplations while walking around the lake; or about meaningful conversations or silly shenanigans with friends and family; or about everyday adventures where I’m surprised by the unexpected. It is this–these moments of daily joy and awe–that then infuses the writing. And sharing this life-writing-process with you, here and through my Instagram blog, is all part of the fun.
