I'm to be one of the instructors at this year's Summer Writing Institute at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
Michael Ondaatje is the keynote speaker. I'm teaching the non-fiction track, thanks largely to Alabama Curiosities, and I look forward to it. The dates are July 31 to Aug. 3, and July 1 is the application deadline, so please help spread the word.
My photo on the faculty page is the one Jeanne Beckwith snapped of me years ago, one DeepSouthCon weekend, at the "Storyteller" fountain in Five Points in Birmingham, Ala.
