A few days ago, I mentioned that I had submitted “I Can Hear You” for a local reading event. That event was held by Ultreia, Inc. last night, and my piece was accepted. Huzzah! Two of my college professors were in the audience, as well as a former classmate, so it was neat for me to have people I knew out there. The reading featured 9 other local writers and there was some amazing work that was being shared. It was a fantastic experience and I hope I have the opportunity to do more with this group in the future. If you have Facebook (and I know you do. Stop playing Candy Crush and look at me when I’m typing to you.), consider giving them a like, even if you’re not local.
This Friday, 11/15 at 6:30 pm, I’ll be doing another reading on IU-South Bend campus in The Grille. The theme of the night is Analecta, which is the campus literary journal, and I’ll be reading a portion of my story “Blood and Rain” which was published in this year’s issue and won the first place prize for fiction. It’s a small literary journal with no distribution, so if you just happen to be a publisher and you happen to be in the mood to publish it, you should let me know that. 😀
This past Friday, I recorded my first ever podcast interview with the good folks at Newbie Writers. Have you ever wondered what I sound like? Wonder no more! Listen to my dulcet tones as I explain why my pets must be able to double as a food source. It was a great interview and I had a lot of fun doing it. I don’t plan to change my own interview format, but I had fun with the podcast, so maybe I’ll do something with that in the future.
