I just got back from a wonderful week in Portland, Oregon, where I took part in the Tin House writer’s conference. It was incredible. My mind is still churning from all the craft talks, readings, and conversations. And I couldn’t have asked for better teacher/mentors than Matthew Specktor and Anthony Doerr. They challenged me in ways I hadn’t been challenged before, both in terms of the writing itself and the writing life. I’m grateful.

Some other cool news: a short story of mine, “Fit to Scale,” has been accepted for publication by the literary journal Redivider, which is housed by Emerson College in Boston! I’ll send you a link when it comes out in print.

Couple of pieces of news:

I have a new flash fiction piece up at Tin House for their Flash Fiction Fridays series. You can check it out here. Many thanks to editor Thomas Ross!

Also, I’m reading some new work on Monday evening at 8:30 at the Pine Box in Capitol Hill for Pacifica Literary Review‘s release party in honor of their fourth print issue. Here’s the details through Facebook.
