For the past few weeks I’ve been the writer in residence at the Aspen Writer’s Foundation. I’m so grateful to the crack-team who brought me out and took care of me while I was there, the board for their support of the program, the community of Woody Creek who was so warm and welcoming, and Isa Catto Shaw & Daniel Shaw, my gracious and lovely hosts, who made it all possible. You can find out more about the program and what I did there from Andrew Travers at The Aspen Times and Aspen Public Radio, where I was on Mitzi Rapkin’s show, First Drafts. Special thanks to the Woody Creek Community Center for hosting my goodbye bash. I’ll miss you all. Especially the bears.
I’ll be teaching a one week intensive writing workshop with the amazing Dani Shapiro at Blantyre, a 5-star luxury resort in the Berkshires, November 2-8th, 2014. Deadline to apply is August 15th. For more information, visit Wishing Stone Workshops.
There will be an all city read of The Good Thief in my hometown of Salem, Massachusetts this summer: August 21-24, 2014. Thanks to Patricia Zaido and the Salem Partnership for putting it all together. Go here for a full list of events and times.
I’m about to teach my first online class: July 6-12, 2014. There will be videos, online “lectures”, power-point, writing exercises, and open discussion boards for everyone to chat and share their work.
