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.
