My Queerness

The Writers Place
Now that I'm feeling more comfortable calling myself a writer, it seems the universe is offering opportunities to keep me on my path.

Last month in Chicago, I was encouraged to apply for a national LGBT writers workshop.

I'm going to take part in a reading at the Neon Gallery this fall. Watch for details.

I've also been invited to read at an LGBT event at The Writers Place in June with some of KC metro's most notable queer writers.
  • Kelly Barth
  • Crystal Boson
  • Wayne Courtois
  • Wendy Dow
  • Charles Ferruzza
  • Mark Manning
  • Miguel M. Morales
  • David Wayne Reed
It'll be an evening of visual and literary arts -- memoir, poetry, fiction, nonfiction and the photography of Andrea Brookhart.

Let me know if you plan to attend so I don't read that poem about you, you know the one ...

7:00 PM, Friday, June 15, 2012
