It’s a week of literature in our local press! Pick up a copy of the May issue of Sacramento Magazine and read the very fine article about local writers and readers, written by our very own Corinne Litchfield (and, while you’re perusing, check out Corinne’s recently published short story, “What the Beautiful Girls Do,” here). Beautiful job, Corinne! I am honored to be mentioned in the piece.
Last on this post: check out Poetry in Davis this week. Details below. Happy reading and writing!
