America’s oldest literary magazine, The North American Review, has recently accepted my short story “Mudface” for publication!
After working on my novel for two years, I’ve begun putting together a second collection of stories, and this piece is one of them. I’m excited to be joining such a prestigious list of authors who have been published in this magazine.
Big thanks as usual to those who provided valuable feedback on “Mudface.” They know who they are.
I’m excited to be teaching another Master Fiction workshop at GrubStreet this summer.
The deadline for applications is May 26th!
Happy to have a short story, titled “The Comforter,” in the latest issue of Southern Humanities Review!
Some great authors and poets also have work in it, including Kirstin Valdez Quade, Natalie Diaz, Jericho Brown, and Rachel Eliza Griffiths.
I originally workshopped this piece, which is set in Cuba, during my MFA years, and I’m grateful to all the people who offered helpful feedback to make it the story it is today.
So, my first session for the Muse & the Marketplace conference, Keep the Narrative Going: Effective Methods to Provide Context in Fiction, is already full. Therefore, a second session has been added for Saturday, April 30th at 10:45am.
Check out the details on this calendar page: http://museandthemarketplace.com/16-schedule/
I’m really looking forward to the conference!
I put together a little write up about the relationship between creative writing and cinema, and how writers might benefit from watching classic and foreign films.
Big thanks to the folks at GrubStreet for including it in their blog, Grub Daily!
I’m happy to share that I’m going to be teaching a one-week intensive workshop on Context in Fiction through 24PearlStreet, Fine Arts Center in Provincetown‘s online writing program.

Please share with anyone who wants to improve how they provide context in their stories and novels!
