So We Had a Wake; Vernacular with Robert Antoni

Curating these older posts now (November of 2018), I can’t believe it’s been almost nine years since the first night of a fiction seminar with Robert Antoni that was among the most influential and important sustained experiences of my life.

I never  got around to writing very much for Bkish, partly because I rather quickly became consumed with a vernacular project in Robert’s class.  It was a fiction seminar, but it was also an amazing workshop.   I don’t think Bkish exists any longer.

If dispatch and slingshot still exist, they aren’t loading.  The thoughts below are from January 2010.

A few timely things I wanted to share:

My piece, “So We Had A Wake”, is up at slingshot litareview, which is part of the dispatch family.  Please check it out and feel free to comment.

Bookish Us has become Bkish.  I’m looking forward to blogging for that great site in the near future.  Many thanks to Joe, site creator and editor, for inviting me to be a part of it.  From Bkish:

Bkish is a literary opinion and aggregate blog; from author interviews and book news, to reviews and recommendations, to event and journal announcements, we try to cover the entire spectrum of literary goings-on across the globe.

Had my first class with Robert Antoni last night.  The class participants are great (I had the pleasure of meeting and working with many of them last semester) and I’m really looking forward to the reading list, projects, and Robert’s insight.  A great first night.

  1. Wow. I just read “So We Had a Wake” for the third time. What an amazing, moving piece! It feels deeply personal, but is so resonant. Thanks for sharing it.
