Two Upcoming Workshops (also: Two Upcoming Publications!)

I teaching two writing workshops this winter. The first one, Creative Writing through Reading, is a part of the University of Guelph‘s brand new Creative Writing Certificate, in which I am extremely honoured to be teaching. It actually takes place in the gorgeous Guelph campus (Greyhound, here I come!)

The second one is Introduction to Creative Non-Fiction, which I will be teaching at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Education.  I had so much fun teaching it this summer so I’m looking forward to doing it again.

I updated my Workshops and Manuscript Consultation page so you can read more about these exciting opportunities. Hope to see you in one or the other!

I have more exciting news:  my creative nonfiction piece, ‘Yemeni Soup and Other Recipes,’ is coming up in this issue of Grain. Also, a  story from my upcoming collection, ‘The Poets in the Kitchen Window,’ is slated for publication in the winter issue of Prairie Fire. I love this story, which takes place during the Gulf War in a suburb of Tel Aviv.  I originally wrote it ten years ago in Hebrew, so it’s especially exciting to see it finally finding a home.
