Writers are fortunate in many ways. We need few tools to do our work. Pen and paper, a computer, or even a phone will do. Finding the time, physical space, and mind space to write are bigger challenges. Do we need our own personal websites? I have always wanted my work to speak for itself and my words to be read in the places and publications that accepted them. Teaching writing, and sharing my own writing in MFA workshops and elsewhere, has given me an ever-growing appreciation for the power of connecting with other writers, with readers, and with the broader literary community.
Connections with fellow writers have inspired me to create new work, to try new forms, to revise, to improve, and to teach. I hope this site provides one more way to connect.
