June

The school year is over, and I have some good news: I'm now a tenured professor. I feel so lucky. For the students and classes I get to teach. For such great colleagues. I've been celebrating for two weeks straight.

*     *     *

Next week, I'll be teaching a workshop at the David R. Collins Writers' Conference in the Quad Cities. From June 26-28, we'll be talking flash fiction. There are several other intriguing-sounding workshops being offered by a talented crew of instructors, and I think there might still be a little time left to sign up, if you're into that kind of thing. More details here.

On the first day of the conference, I'll also be giving a reading alongside fellow faculty members Kelly Daniels, Adam Fell, Jac Jemc, and Rachel Yoder. It's going down at 7:00 on Thursday the 26th, at the Rozz-Tox QC. There's even going to be music, by LA-based Anna Ash.

*     *     *

I'll also be doing a QC-area event in July, at the Bettendorf Public Library. As a part of the library's "Summer Shorts" program, I'll be discussing my stories "Peloma" & "Consent" on Wednesday, July 16th at 1:00 in the Malmros Conference Room.

Two more things:

After I posted my old story "About to Drop" on here a couple weeks ago, Kenneth Nichols wrote a very cool response to it over at his Great Writers Steal blog. You can read it here.

The latest issue of Quiddity is out and contains my story "I Later Learned the Fish was a Gar," which won the magazine's Teresa A. White Award. Quiddity also has an excellent podcast, and if you go here, you can listen to an interview with Katherine Vaz conducted by Amy Sayre-Baptista, and me, reading that little award-winning story of mine.

    Teachers are the builders of a nation.Builders build only buildings but the teachers build the whole nation.So it is great and pleasant to be a teacher and to teach little ones is more interesting and great.
