I’m teaching a Writer’s League of Texas workshop called
"First Draft to Best Draft: Revising Like a Professional" on March 9, 2019 here in Austin. I love revising and have a lot of little practical techniques to share. Am also teaching a little workshop on “Making Stories” to some smaller writers at Joslin Elementary on February 11, 2019.
Pretty thrilled to say that a professional theater, Austin Playhouse, has commissioned me to write a children's theater version of my book Summer and Bird. Here are the details. It's on the season for April 2019.
Massive un-humblebragging, forgive me, but where else but on my own website? I was nominated for Best Fiction/Poetry Writer in the 2017 Austin Chronicle Readers Poll. Also was nominated as Outstanding Actress in a Comedy (for John, Hyde Park Theatre) and Outstanding Actress in a Drama (for Song About Himself, Capital T Theatre) by Austin's B. Iden Payne Awards. Universe conspiring very kindly to boost my ego.
I wrote a crazy thing called Sister of Shattering Glass. It's a an all-ages adventure story that takes place in people's text messages over the course of five months, ending in July 2017. It's over now, but you can learn more at the Physical Plant Theatre. If you experienced the piece, I'd love to hear about your experience if you care to share.
The Austin Chronicle did a really lovely interview with me in their September 30, 2016 issue. All about fairy-making and Burning Man and learning lines and why you should make art. YES YOU.
My ten-minute play "Right into the Night Sky" was nominated as Outstanding Original Script at the 2016 local B. Iden Payne theater awards, up against four, you know, actual, full-length plays. A canary flying (briefly) with the eagles!
The Cabinet of Curiosities website is experiencing some sort of horrific undead half-life--another way of saying we're posting stories there only sporadically right now. My most recent story involves all kinds of horrors, including aliens, lobotomies, and substitute teachers.
I wrote a post on writing in the omniscient point of view for Yellow Bird Editors. Let's bring it back y'all!
I did a multi-stop blog tour for The Radiant Road--see this blog post of mine for links as they post. My faves in gifs! what I'd rather! Clare's soundtrack! and much more.
