Writers and Their Notebooks

I'm pleased to announce that my essay "Clearing the Decks" is included in the anthology, Writers and Their Notebooks (University of South Carolina Press), which has now been officially released.

To compile the book, editor Diana M. Raab solicited essays from writers who keep--and rely on--a journal.  Contributors include Sue Grafton, Kim Stafford, Dorianne Laux, John DuFresne, James Brown and Michael Steinberg, to name a few. The foreword is written by the world-renowned personal essayist, Phillip Lopate.

Diana recently featured more about the book on her blog and has reprinted an excerpt from the introduction.  LINK HERE to read the intro...and be sure to link to Diana's website to learn more about her prize-winning writing and the workshops she teaches on memoir writing, journaling and poetry at UCLA and across the country.
