A grab bag of updates

First off, my friend Maggie Slater just did an interview with the co-editor of Apex Magazine, which you should definitely check out if you want a glimpse behind the publishing curtain. 

I had a great time at the Willamette Writers Conference earlier this month.  The speakers were excellent, and I took so.  Many.  Notes.  Good stuff! 

This week I facilitated a discussion through the Garden Home Community Library on one of my favorite topics, short stories.  In October I’ll be presenting to the Young Willamette Writers on another of my favorites, poetry. 

My copies of Triangulation: Energy just arrived in the mail, and I also got my contributor copy of Draw Down the Moon.  I’ve got some editing work to do on my chapbook, The Inca Weaver’s Tales.  Looking forward to getting that spiffed up.
