Life has been a whirlwind lately. There are blog posts I’ve wanted to write, but haven’t made time. However, I have some announcements that I want to dash off before turning in for the night.
1. Registration for the Submission Mission 2014 workshop is now open! For details and a link to the registration form, check out the Workshops page.
2. After over a year of revision, I’m ready to start sending out my next manuscript! I finished the first draft of Curved Tongue, Forked Road a few days after Thanksgiving in 2012. After three beta readers, lots of cuts and additions, and hours spent arranging poems, I have a manuscript I’m excited to share.
3. I’m not on the planning committee of Flor de Nopal, but I believe it’s the best literary festival that Austin has to offer. This year, they’re underfunded. If your bank account has room to spare, please consider making a donation. It’s tax deductible, and filing season is just around the corner!
4. This weekend I’m reading at the Dos Gatos Press Texas Poetry Calendar reading, held at BookPeople on Saturday the 7th. The reading starts at 4. I’m also reading at the Austin Writergrrls Book Festival, held at BookWoman on Sunday the 8th, also starting at 4. Both events are free and open to the public.
I think that wraps it up for now. Hopefully I’ll have time for longer updates in the new year!
