I have some Things coming up that you may be interested in!
Thing the First: I’ll be having a belated Our Lady of the Ice release party at Writespace Houston this Friday, March 18, at 7:30 pm. There will be cake, snacks, and giveaways! Maybe tango music if I can swing it! Stop by if you can. Here are the directions to Writesapce. It’s hard to find if you’ve never been before. PS: This event is freeeeeeeee!
Thing the Second: I will be teaching a six-week Fiction for Beginning Writers workshop at Writespace starting March 21. Classes will be every Monday evening from 6-9 PM, running from March 21 to April 25th. We’ll be focusing on the building blocks of writing fiction–plot, character, setting, pov, and dialogue, and all students will have a chance to have a story or novel excerpt workshopped. We’ll also be reading published short fiction and doing a bunch of hands-on writing exercises, because that’s how I roll. Cost is $245 if you’re not a Writespace member (and $215 if you are).
Thing the Third: I’ve been invited to participate in a reading at the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston in conjunction with their current exhibit, “The Interview: Red, Red Future,” an installation piece examining the future of Martian colonization. I’m going to write a new piece especially to read, and there will be other local writers and poets reading as well. Read more about the event here!.
