My latest news is that Stitched Lips is here, featuring my story “Chorus of Whispers.” It’s already getting a lot of positive buzz and a couple of reviews have called out my story, which is always nice. Best of all, the profits from the book go to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Additionally, I’ll be at Penguicon next weekend! Here’s my schedule:
Saturday April 23
12:00 pm – Read Like a Pro (panel)
2:00 pm – Short Stories: from Idea to Final Draft (workshop)
5:00 pm – Pandemics in Literature (panel)
8:00 pm – Cieslak & Hans Reading
My understanding is that the panels and workshops will have links to their platforms (Google Meet, Zoom, etc.) that will populate in Sched 10 minutes before they’re due to begin. The reading will take place on the Penguicon Discord server, I think? I’m terrible at Discord so we’ll see how that goes! This will be my first solo workshop, so I’m nervous and excited. It’ll be a little preview of a much longer, more involved workshop I’m planning to offer during the summer.
I hope you’re well! I’m working hard in Richard Thomas’s Novel in a Year class, but finding time and energy to write during the school year while a pandemic still rages is proving to be a challenge. How are you?
