Thank you to the Ridley Park (PA) Library for selecting Long Drive Home for its fifth annual Community Reads event.
This course offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at One Story’s editorial process. Daily online lessons will guide you through case studies of two stories. You’ll follow the stories from submission to publication—studying actual marked-up drafts and extensive author-editor correspondence.
Playwright Stephen Kaplan is adapting my second novel, Long Drive Home, for the stage. Join us for a free reading of this work-in-progress at the cell theatre in New York City.

Writers seeking feedback face a lot of options: Join a writers group? Enroll in a workshop? Attend a conference? Apply to MFA programs? This panel is for writers at any career stage who are curious about another option: working one-on-one with an independent editor. You’ll meet four veteran editors with diverse backgrounds in writing, lit mags, and book publishing. They’ll discuss the services editors provide, finding the right editor for your work, making the most of the relationship, and more.

I recently learned that this reading from the 2008 Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference is available online. It’s an excerpt from my first novel, What You Have Left.
