Take my Prose Writing Workshop, 2019

Starting on January 14th, I’ll be leading a Writing Workshop at Morton College, in Cicero, Illinois. The workshop meets twice weekly and runs until May 15th. It’s a community college class, so in-district and out-of-district fees apply, but pricing can be found at the college website or by calling 708-656-8000. The class will focus on narrative non-fiction, but it will remain open to fiction. No poetry will be workshopped.

To register, go to the Morton College website and look for ENG 152-1F, Creative Writing II.

I’m not just the workshop leader but also the advisor for the Morton Collegian, the student newspaper. This class will also offer participants the possibility of having their (non-fiction) work submitted for review to the Collegian’s editors. The paper will be redesigned next year, and would like to publish more personal essays.

I hope you’ll join us!

My new book, available Autumn 2019

Some people have been wondering why Liquid Ink has been so silent. Instead of writing here, I’ve spent the last year working on a variety of projects, including a manuscript currently under contract with Homebound Publications.

It’s titled Relief by Execution: A Visit to Mauthausen.  As you might imagine, the book is about a trip I took to Mauthausen and what sort of consciousness I discovered there. It’s also an intimate look at fixed ideas I inherited while growing up in a xenophobic and bigoted environment. Those ideas influenced my perceptions, but they finally shattered completely during my visit to a concentration camp.

Expect more news as the publication date approaches, and follow me here on Liquid Ink for updates.  You can also follow my author page on Facebook and hear my banter on Twitter.
