Community of Writers graciously shared one of my essays in the latest issue of Omnium Gatherum Quarterly. The issue is available here.
Six years ago, I brought pieces of what eventually became my forthcoming novel The Lockhart Women to the Community of Writers Fiction Workshop. It was my first ever writing conference and I was full of unfounded confidence. I’d read a story about a woman who was offered a book deal at the conference while standing in line for dinner. I’m old enough to know better than to have grand expectations like that, but of course I did anyway.
