Story Acceptance from North American Review.

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.

Cape Cod Writer’s Retreat Story Collection Class

I’m excited to be teaching this one-day class at the Cape Cod Writer’s Retreat in March! The class will deal with how to put together and promote a story collection.

The retreat takes place in the offseason at the historic Inn At the Oaks. It’s a wonderful opportunity to stay at a beautiful place filled with artistic energy, meet with other writers, and take Saturday classes on several topics.

Please feel free to share with anyone who you think might be interested. It is recommended that you sign up for the class by contacting the Inn and making your reservation for the retreat as early as possible. Here’s the contact info:
