What’s with this hot, humid weather? Where did last week’s crispy, chilly autumn weather go? I’m so, so ready for autumn.  I’m deep in revision, and
my Fall 2017 Word’s Worth schedule of creative writing classes is now underway! The Memoir class filled fast and is now closed, but there are several one-night classes coming up–starting with So You Wanna Write to get you started. Those Word’s Worth classes take place in Dayton, but I’ll be returning to the Thurber House in Columbus to teach a master class on October 7–First Chapters, First Impressions. I hope you’re all reading wonderful books! I just read The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying by Nina Riggs, a memoir by a poet who died from metastatic breast cancer. Beautiful and heartbreaking, and much harder (emotionally) for me to read than I expected–“We are breathless, but we love the days. They are promises. They are the only way to walk from one night to the other.”
