Here’s what has my attention right now.
- Getting out of the house occasionally is good for the soul (and my writing). Looking forward to hearing Four Stories on October 19. I loved meeting the series’ founder recently—the lovely Tracy Slater.
- So exciting! GrubStreet just awarded me their Administrative Scholarship! I’ll help manage their Memoir Incubator. The year is flying by!
- Whaaat?! I’ve been selected as the Incubator’s Social Coordinator. So when I’m not hermetically sealed in a room, writing, I’ll maintain our Facebook group, The Second Drafters, and organize memoir-flavored social events.
- I volunteered for Boston’s first Lit Crawl, and it was a blast. Nick Flynn transported me with his poetry. Folk duo The Shaker played haunting songs that expressed their pain about recent racial violence.
- I can’t believe the second term of GrubStreet’s Memoir Incubator has begun! I’m writing my second draft of To Have and To Hoard. It’s about a love triangle of man, woman and stuff. I’m working hard to define the manuscript’s narrative arc.
- Rounded out the year as a volunteer and Editorial Board Member for a Dreams chapbook at 826 Boston. The organization helps youth with creative and expository writing. I also had fun volunteering at 826’s Tandy Awards. This year I’m hoping to lend a hand at the John D. O’Bryant School’s Writers’ Room.
- Happy to be working with a new partner. I’m writing content for a new private car service.
- Just finished writing “Whole Cloth,” the fall 2016 cover feature of Framingham State University’s alumni magazine.
- First blog post for GrubStreet published on GrubStreet’s blog, GrubWrites.
- I’m working as a content specialist in higher education: I write press releases, web content, social media posts and magazine stories.
- Now enrolled in the Copyblogger Certified Content Marketer course. Can’t wait to become Certified!
- I’m looking for a full-time job. Contact me if you hear of a need for a content specialist or editor in a digital and/or innovation company.
