What a pleasure it is to come back to Brockton Writers Series! A lot’s happened since the first time I read here, way back in November 2013–for one, the short story I read that night, “Comets”, found its way into my second collection, Nobody Looks That Young Here, which at the time I thought was my first book and I thought was finished, too… It was finally published last year.
Volunteering with BWS for four years changed me as a person and as a writer, and mostly because of the diverse group of talented, passionate writers and volunteers I got to know during this time. I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, but also some new ones; if I don’t know you yet, then let me introduce myself by way of the interview below, from December of last year.
See you on March 13!
