GrubStreet Podcast on Creative Writing Workshops.

Eson Kim did an amazing job putting together this podcast discussing the creative writing workshop. Highly recommended for anyone who has taken or is planning to take a creative writing class.

A lot of instructors at GrubStreet, including myself, contributed to this important and insightful discussion about what it means to be a good workshop citizen, among other relevant topics.

Back From My Trip to Cuba.

My wife and I recently went on a ten-day trip to Havana. It was the first time back in the island for me after 18 years. My experience was an incredible one, surpassing all expectations. I hope to return soon and often to Cuba, a place that will always be close to my heart.

This is me sitting on the front steps of the house where I grew up.
