In other news, on Wednesday (November 27), I had the opportunity to read from my thesis/manuscript at UBC’s Creative Writing Graduation Class of 2013 Reading. It was a privilege to read with such talented colleagues. If you’re not already following the updates from the Creative Writing UBC alumni page, I encourage you to check it out. UBC has a very fine writing program and a history of producing some very exciting writers.

December already! I hope the season is bringing joy and poems and stories to you.
