Every month, Creative Nonfiction publishes a tiny magazine, True Story, containing a single longform essay. I’m honored the magazine chose my piece on topographical agnosia, “Where Am I?” for a 2019 Pushcart Prize nomination.
“Breathing Underwater” is a one-page essay-poem about how trauma lives and works in the body-mind. I love On the Seawall in part because one of my central subjects as a writer is swimming/water. And I love this magazine’s focus on short and flash fiction, conventional and lyric essay, cross-genre writing, text and image. They also publish photo essays.
New Textbook Content
For the fourth edition of The Practice of Creative Writing, my textbook, I’m creating podcasts and interviews with authors in order to help bring the page and the process to life for students. It’s fun and exciting (and frustrating and hard) to learn new technology. As a teacher, it’s important for me to be in the student position as often as possible.
