Apply! Kearny Street Workshop and CIIS re-launch IWL

Come write with me (and Chinaka Hodge and Nayomi Munaweera) in San Francisco this summer! Kearny Street Workshop, in collaboration with California Institute of Integral Studies, is re-launching the Interdisciplinary Writers Lab (IWL), a 3-month, multi-genre master class for local writers scheduled for summer, 2015. IWL is a unique program that challenges emerging writers to thoroughly explore and develop their writing skills and styles across multiple genres. Applications due on March 23, 2015.

Thank you, Wendy Chin-Tanner, for a lively conversation!

Thank you to Wendy and Lantern Review for a wonderful conversation. As I note in the interview, "both my experience in the Kundiman fellowship and my friendship with Traci Brimhall have taught me that being a good literary citizen is about cultivating authentic connections and caring about one another. It’s about believing in and championing one another’s work. It’s a model that goes against the individualism so prevalent in a competitive, capitalistic North American social framework."
