Spring is here! When I lived in Los Angeles, this is the exact temperature I would complain about—cool enough to require a long sleeve shirt, but just warm enough to make me sweat if I did anything more intensive than walk. Now that I live in New York, however, I love this weather. Which goes to show either a) I'm getting old b) platitudes about human nature are dead-on accurate, or c) both.
It's been a busy few months since the last newsletter. Here's an exciting development: I'm now the co-host of the Writerly podcast with Danielle Trussoni! Every week, we discuss the art and business of writing—everything from starting a draft to finding a publisher to marketing your masterpiece. (Is Writer's Block real? We tackle that, too.)
We also interview authors (the hilarious A.J. Jacobs), publishing consultants (the insightful Jane Friedman), publicists, editors, writing coaches...everyone you’ll meet, or want to meet, at the often-bewildering intersection of creativity and commerce.
If you're curious, check out one of our episodes! They're short (20-25 min), entertaining (he said modestly), and whether you're a rank amateur or a grizzled vet, there's something for everyone.
A new reading on Thursday, April 25th
If you prefer your Panio-time live and in person, I'll be reading in the upcoming “Kill Genre” quarterly reading series next week. The series "showcases groundbreaking works that push the boundaries of form and flirt dangerously with hybridity” (hang on, got to go write something innovative, brb).
BUT SERIOUSLY. It should be a memorable night with some fantastic writers. I'd love to see you there!
