Reverberations

Have you been in suspense in the nearly full year since my last blog post about how my trip to Des Moines went?

Well, it was one of those days that has shaped the entire year to follow and perhaps more. I meant to give a full report of the Creative Capital workshop, reviewing my notes and everything, but instead I’ll just say that one of the exercises was to draft a proposal for an artistic project.

Sweating, I wrote “Nest” at the top of my paper and then “Nest is a book of essays exploring the meaning of home…”

Since then I’ve put together a manuscript and submitted it to five chapbook contests. It includes pieces that have been published, but I also wrote additional essays.

The other day I learned the manuscript is a semifinalist in one of the contests.
