I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Alex Quinlan and Dorothy Chan over at The Southeast Review about writing, Split Lip, and fashion. Check it out here.
I’ll be at Barrelhouse’s Conversations and Connections Conference on 4/22 in DC sharing literary wisdom, real talk, and strategies for literary success with my friend and colleague Amanda Miska. Join us for a healthy vent session and maybe some late-morning wine.
Sign up and learn more here.
Thrilled to have a story in Booth this month.
Announcing the 1st Annual Literary Advent Calendar, for heathens, nerds, and believers alike! I’ll be reading one story/poem/essay a day for 25 days and sharing the deets here and on Twitter. Also looking for any and all suggestions, and will share your recommendations for favorite literary works from 2016 and beyond with the masses. Leave a comment, send me a message, Tweet at me, whatever it is, don’t be shy.
Happy reading and joyous wishes for 2016 to you. May you get all the books your geeky heart desires.
