@ the Kenyon Writers Workshop

Just a quick note to share that I will be a fellow at the Kenyon Writers Workshop this summer (June 15-22), which means I will get to assist the wonderful Rebecca McClanahan in teaching the nonfiction workshop, which specifically means I will get to read participants' manuscripts and conference with them. I will also get to hang out in the company of great writers and spend a week in the bucolic countryside of Ohio (I am already looking forward to exploring the nearby Amish county).

Rebecca was one of my professors in the MFA program at Queens University of Charlotte, and I can vouch for her being a terrific teacher. In fact, she is the one teacher I've emulated the most when teaching myself, see my essay The Box.

Rebecca tells me there are a few slots left in her workshop, so if you're a nonfiction writer, serious about your craft, and looking for a week of instruction, inspiration, and getting actual writing done, do apply, and let me know if you are!


  1. Ah, congratulations on the new gig. I wish I were available that week to take it.

    1. Julie - thanks, I wish you could come, too!
