Writer-in-Residence at the Hemingway Foundation


My big news since returning from Tel Aviv: I will be the 2014-15 writer-in-residence at the Hemingway Foundation! This entails having a studio up under the roof of Hemingway's birthplace home in Oak Park, Illinois. What could be cooler than writing from Hemingway's attic? It's just a tad intimidating, actually...

My responsibilities also include offering community programming, and my head is already churning with ideas. I haven't even seen the space yet, but before the cocktail party announcing my residency last weekend, I walked by the house and took this shot. More to follow on this once I've "moved in!"
