Rain, Writing, and Storytelling
A lot has happened over the past few months. Lots of good stuff! August welcomed the release of Faithfully Feminist: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Feminists on Why We Stay (White Cloud Press). I produced a podcast featuring several Muslim contributors to the anthology. What an honor to hear from women about their journey of faith…american muslim identity, american muslim love, American Muslim stories, Bethany Chafin, deonna kelli sayed, Faithfully Feminist, Madiba Brooklyn, memoir, Muslim media, New York City, paranormal obsession: america’s fascination with ghosts, podcasting, RadBrownDads, StoryCorps, storytelling, The Monti, WFDD, Wildacres Retreat, writing residency
It had rained for five days. Hard, like a rage spilling into the earth. I had my mountaintop writing residency waiting, the one with scenic hiking trails and early hints of fall foliage. To be honest, the rain made me mad. “Maybe,” my son said, “…maybe the rain is coming to wash your old stories…
Finally. My stories are coming to life. Sort of. In you are anywhere near Chapel Hill, NC on September 12, 2015, please come out to The Monti’s season opener where I take the stage and expound on Danger! I’m honored to be part of a NC storytelling tradition, and I think I’ll look great on…
