2018:

Wonderful news! I’m judging fiction for The Claremont Review Writing and Art contest this year! My then-teenaged daughter appeared in one of the Claremont Review’s first issues, so I couldn’t be happier. The Claremont Review champions the vital and exciting work of youth writers and artists, so tell everyone in your life!

Art

The New Quarterly used one of my Paris paintings on the cover of their recent issue. That made three times this year my artwork was used in a lit publication.

A few of my art pieces appear either on FB or on my blog heading articles. I’m slowly working on a feminist text and art book for which I’ll need about fifty pieces.
