Writer-pals: Middlebury College's BreadLoaf in Sicily is the best week-long writers' conference that I've ever attended. Simply the best of the best PLUS it isn't far from Switzerland. Feel free to ask me about it and watch out -- the deadline is steaming on full speed ahead -- 15 March with rolling admission!
On a much less professional note, just a quick message to brag about ... I mean SHARE the surprise I found in my email this morning — 14 of my haikus are going to be published in Everyday Haikus Anthology summer 2016. They're short and silly and I'm absolutely delighted to have tickled the small press publisher Wandering Muse Press.
