Sub Party 11/19! & Mark Your Calendar for Your Day in the Labyrinth…

Friends and Writers,

I hope these beautiful fall breezes are stirring your imagination for autumnal writing. I can’t wait for this fall, which is–for me–going to be a whirlwind (to continue with weather references) of lit mag submitting and chapbook readings and celebrations.

I’d love for you to join me in this fun!

First up: Saturday, September 19, join me at Studio J in Midtown Sacramento for a Sub Party! Only $40 gets you fun, friends working alongside you, and frank answers from Janna and me to any and all your submitting/publishing questions! More info here!

Next, mark your calendar for the launch reading and party (emphasis on party) for my first poetry collection, the chapbook Our Day in the Labyrinth, on Friday, November 6! You won’t want to miss this delightful evening featuring an unconventional reading with performances by four other terrific, beloved local poets, plus other surprises…

Below, I include highlights from my still-evolving fall and winter mini-tour of readings and talks. Updates will appear regularly on

I look forward to being with you in and around writing this fall!
