The Writers Circle Journal has launched its 10th anniversary issue, including a short story I wrote called The Ritual. It is a semi-autobiographical reflection on a moment of transition in a dancer’s life. Please read, share, comment, and enjoy.
My latest personal essay, Potluck Dinners: From perfect to a step too far just published in the 2019 holiday issue of Edible Jersey. My dear writing friends from Madeleine L’Engle’s workshops and The Writers Circle will certainly remember some of those wonderful potluck gatherings!
I’m so excited to see my guest blog post-–“Are you sure you want to know the future?”–shared on Madeleine L’Engle’s website. It recalls a moment I spent with Madeleine long ago and an invaluable lesson, one of many, that I took away from knowing her. Thanks to Charlotte Jones Voiklis for sharing my words and memories.
Stephanie Cowell and Pamela Leggett at The Madeleine L’Engle Conference: Walking on Water in New York City, sharing our remembrances of studying with Madeleine years ago in New York City. Her workshop was my very first serious exposure to writers and writing practice, and what I learned from Madeleine has informed everything I have ever done with my own teaching and with the formation of The Writers Circle. The entire conference was truly inspirational, as have been all the experiences I’ve ever shared with the friends and writers I’ve met through Madeleine’s orbit. I’m so grateful to have been a small part of such a wonderful event. Read more in the November 26 Publishers Weekly article., 2019: I was incredibly honored to be on a panel with my dear friends
