Actual Class News

The story so far...

Robert Rosenberg's novel This Is Not Civilization is out.

Frances De Pontes Peeble's story "The Drowned Woman" is in The O. Henry Prize Stories 2005.

Kevin Clouther sold a novel and a story collection, as reported here.

Kerry Egan's book Fumbling is out, and she was on CNN (anyone got a video link?).

What else? Who else has something out? Links to poems or stories maybe? I must be missing lots of news.

The Lovely Becky's novel, Icebergs, is forthcoming this fall.

We also have Kerry's appearance on tape if anyone is interested in watching it. The most coherent, intelligent response to the "Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas" Faux News nonsense ever heard.

I couldn't find a link to Becky's novel and wasn't sure when it was coming out -- and I knew if I left it out that one of you would HAVE to post the info. Ha! Because not enough people are posting here! Many have "accepted in the invite" but it's like you're all standing around the edge of the pool, watching me and Alex splash-wrestling in the water, after having slathered each other with baby oil, and we're wearing pink diapers or something, and I just want to cry and cry into my dog's smelly fur.

Who's Alex?

Ian had a story in Best New American Voices, I think. And what about poets, man? (I'm being nudged by dunkeygirl). Carrie Bennett's collection won a prize, and isn't Sandra Miller about to become poet laureate or something? Poets? Poets? Anyoneouthere?

And then there was that Virginia Quarterly Review, ahem.

As much as I like the idea of Corbin and Alex splashing in the pool (there are, I trust, those darling water-wings involved), I'm joinin' the ranks of Earth-Goat posters. Ian, my best pal and the object of my affection (though our insurance calls him my Domestic Partner), had a story in Zoetrope in September and in Best New American Voices 2005.
Love that there's a Workshop Class o' 2003 gathering place, Corbin! Thanks for setting it up!

I have a piece forthcoming in Passages North (http://myweb.nmu.edu/~passages/) in the winter/spring issue, which is supposed to come out "in January or February." The lovely Becky used to be an editor there. Coincidence? I think not.

Thanks Corbin! I'm loving hearing everyone's news.

For my part, I've been slaving away on this little piece for five months now...it's growing steadily (almost out of control), and in recent weeks I've been especially concerned about voice, momentum, and how well it's standing on its own. She's probably about ready to be workshopped. Have at it, my Iowa friends:

Robert and Michelle, congratulations! Gabriella is precious -- a beautiful girl with a beautiful name. Our best to the three of you.

Grendel said...

Yes, Gabriella is adorable. Thanks for posting that link, Robert. She's lucky too. Imagine having Robert and Michelle as your parents! A man can dream, can't he? Can a 38-year-old be adopted?

She is indeed a cutie, and that exersaucer with the Death Star on it is bitchin'.

Jimmy, in his suave way, sends her a suave "Sppplllllyyttt Goy Goy BBBBBBB Ma Pa" -- I think he's asking her out, or just wants George to stop licking his head (he got shots yesterday, so he is not as suave as usual).
