Chocolate & Peanut Butter

My latest blog post, up on the Writers & Books website, is about Writing & Yoga and the retreat I’m co-leading on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at Writers & Books’ Gell Center:

“There’s an ad from when I was a child that sometimes still runs in my head: Two great tastes that taste great together.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

That’s what deciding to create a yoga and writing workshop felt like to me. Marijana and I met in yoga teacher training at Open Sky Yoga in 2009.  We have different backgrounds and personalities, and have enjoyed getting to know each other over the last five years.  As we talked, we were inspired to combine our passion for both yoga and creativity/the written word.”  To read the whole post, click here:  http://www.wab.org/writing-yoga-at-the-gell-center/

Words as Image

My guest post, “Words as Image,” published in the Brevity Blog discusses the origins of my essay, “Thank You,” in Brevity: A Journal of Concise Literary Nonfiction. My post also refers to the use of imagery in an earlier essay, “Street Scene,” which was published in The Kenyon Review Online.  As a bonus, this post also includes a writing prompt.  Read it here.
