December 2023 Update: New Short Story Cohort

Note: If you’d prefer to receive this monthly update in your email inbox (along with additional content, like my cat’s latest conversations), you can sign up for my newsletter here.

It’s time for the last update of the year, and as I write this I can see a small herd of deer picking their way through our woods. We’ve been working on rewilding the property and it’s nice to see that sort of tangible result. 

Guppy is losing her mind, of course. 

As the year winds down, I have a few exciting announcements. You can read on for more specifics, as well as a special, festive hello from Elsie at the end.

I’m most thrilled to let you know that applications are open for my first Short Story Cohort of 2024. In this three month program, I’ll guide a group of six writers to write and polish three short stories for submission.

While virtual events remain in full swing, my in-person event calendar is winding down for the year. You can always view my entire event calendar here.

I hope the end of 2023 brings with it warmth and light.
