I’m pretty thrilled to note that I’ll be joining the editorial board for Confluence, my university’s creative writing publication, this fall. It’s my understanding that some print-friendly iteration of Anselm will also be appearing in the 2012-2013 issue, but more on that once it’s a done deal.
I will be making a research trip to southwest Indiana and southeast Illinois in a few weeks to dig up what I can about the life and death of Cyril Shuppert and his wife, Mary, for my creative nonfiction piece they inspired. If it does not culminate in a montage, replete with a shot of me sleeping on a pile of old newspapers with my glasses askew, I will be thoroughly disappointed.
I have also been developing content beneath the trapdoor of cruithear.com, as evidenced by the post in late May. With my attention turning toward graduate schools and Master of Fine Arts programs, the phrase “portfolio requirements” is nipping a little more harshly at my heels. You might expect more proper forays into Calhoun & Dresden in the coming months.
