I’m looking forward to sharing the story of how I consciously chose to start calling myself a writer–finally–at nearly forty-years-old later this month in Proximity Magazine’s weekly blog, True. Don’t be like me, writers. Don’t wait to own what you do!

Congratulations to Anthony Moll on winning the 2017 Non/Fiction Collection Prize from literary magazine The Journal. Anthony is an alumnus of my alma mater, the University of Baltimore, and was a participant of the Marlboro College Summer Writing Intensive, which I also had the good fortune of attending a couple times. …
