I Will Stay Sober, But You Don’t Have To

There’s a new reading series at The Beer Diviner Taproom in Troy, NY on the last Sunday of every month. I am the guest presenter for March. The format involves a reading, discussion, and then the readers leads the audience in a writing exercise or two that is connected to her practice in some way. I’ll be reading a new story and possibly an excerpt from my book-length work in progress. Here is a link to the event page.

This will be a bit of a teaser for the next session of writing workshop I’m leading for The Arts Center of the Capital Region. That’s to start on Monday, April 3 and will run for eight weeks. It focuses on writing process in that we will be in it – a writing process. The works you create can give you short pieces, parts of longer works, and generally get you in the habit of reading and writing prolifically. I absolutely love these classes. UPDATE: This class is sold out. 

Here, details:

    Cara, I have recently become a pen pal for Edwin Santana. It’s a long story ! Anyway, he sent me a piece he did about learning poetry writing with you when he was at Mt. McGregor before it closed. Great praises from him and he noted in his latest letter that he has always wondered how you were doing. By the looks of things you’re doing very well ! Is it OK if I tell him he can contact you through Facebook or some other way ? He suggests he may be getting out soon but that may be wishful thinking. He certainly is a sharp writer…. Stay Well, Vic Nippert
