Two invitations yesterday and today.
Yesterday Ashley Balcazar, the graduate student in Jill Talbot's graduate seminar "B(l)ending Genres: Fiction and Nonfiction," wrote to ask whether our interview could in fact be published in a portfolio of student interviews at AMERICAN LITERARY REVIEW. Before we did the interview, we'd agreed that it would just be for the class. I was frank and informal in a way I probably wouldn't have been if she hadn't been bipolar herself and if the interview was for publication. I guess it's probably okay, with some cuts.
I just finished the craft essay on hybridity and THE LUNATICS' BALL for the W.W. Norton textbook, improved after back and forth with my friend Matthew. No telling whether the publishers will want it, but I have my fingers crossed.
Francine Witte just invited me to be one of the spotlight readers on December 2 at the new online reading series she's co-curating with Meg Pokrass THE PROSE GARDEN.
