Stringing for “Brevity”: the Second of Three.

Continuing to tell the world about covering AWP panels for my bucket-list mag, Brevity:

When they talk about “distinguished panelists,” they are not kidding. One of my favorite writers, Mimi Schwartz (Thoughts from a Queen-Sized Bed), the editor of one of my favorite magazines, Joe Mackall (River Teeth Journal); and Philip Lopate (Philip Lopate).

“Speaking after Phillip Lopate must be like what Danny DeVito feels, at a bar with Brad Pitt. They’re not there for you but there is decent overflow.”

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
