*new note: I saw the Northern Lights! I was on a frozen lake, bundled head to toe with my family and our most excellent friend, Alex, and a curtain of green waved along the horizon.*

*old NOTE: Blog is on temporary hiatus through May of 2018, while I spend the winter in Northern Manitoba. Watching birds. And foxes. And soon, hopefully, the Aurora.*

*one more note: If you see a “password protected post” you may ask me for the password, but what this means is the content is under consideration at a publication.*

Weekly posts, every Wednesday, with prompts, experimental poetry, kitchen-table stories, and advice.

The Gallery is explained here: The Controversys.

A lot of younger writers follow this blog. So, there are often posts which offer advice and encouragement about things I know about, such as submitting your work to journals.

If you have a question or would like to contact me, please feel free to use the comment form. I am happy to talk and will anonymously answer any questions in the next Wednesday’s blog.
