Just a quick post to tell you what I’ve been up to. This year I’ve been teaching two nine-month memoir writing classes–one through Hugo House here in Seattle and the other through the University of Washington’s Professional & Continuing Education department. So I’ve been busy with that, but I also had the opportunity to spend some precious days at Hedgebrook this winter working on a new project. I am very grateful for my time at Hedgebrook, which is a very special residency program here on Washington State’s Whidbey Island. I’ve
started in on a new project (dare I say “book”?), which is too fledgling to talk about yet but that I’m excited about. More about that anon!
More current happenings:
I did this really fun interview with Katie Woodzick’s Theatrical Mustang podcast. If you’re interested in learning more about memoir or are considering taking one of my webinars or yearlong classes, you might find it interesting. You can find out more about the Theatrical Mustang podcast here.
The How to Write a Modern Love Teleseminar on March 22nd with New York Times Modern Love Editor Dan Jones and six Modern Love writers was a huge success. If you missed the live event, you can still purchase the recording via Pay Pal for $79 here:
On Saturday May 9th, I’ll be teaching a Memoir Essentials Class at Hugo House. There are still a few spots open in that class. Learn more and register here.
