Passing Through is an online collaboration between art and writing that seeks to capture, twice a year, the transient nature of our lives. The “road less traveled,” however interpreted, is a significant aspect of this journal, as is movement, intersections, wanderlust , nomadic people, tucked away corners, cities, odd homes, scratch-on-the-map towns, wildernesses, and rites of passage.
A prose/photography collaboration I completed with my daughter was included in the January 2015 inaugural issue of Passing Through.
I am now selling handmade books at the new indie bookstore: Papercuts JP. Owned and operated by Kate Layte, the tiny 500 square foot store is located at 5 Green Street near Centre Street in the middle of Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. For more information about the store, visit: facebook.com/papercutsjp.
I will be selling small books that include my flash fiction or prose poems, as well as blank books to be used as sketchbooks or journals. Here is a sampling:
A Gap and An Opening: An accordion-fold book that includes flash fiction, collage and hand-painted elements.
Thoughts About Laundry: Prose and hand-colored photographs that hang from a line of laundry.
Sketchbooks & Journals:
Every year, The Writers’ Room of Boston supports four emerging local writers who need financial support to secure a quiet place to develop their work. Fellowship recipients receive full membership to The Writers’ Room for 12 months (February through January) at no cost. Members enjoy 24-hour access to a light-filled work space in downtown Boston and the support of an engaged community of writers.
Awards for the Emerging Writer Fellowship Program are based upon the quality of a submitted writing sample, a project description, a CV or resume and a statement of need. The Fellowships are open to writers working in any genre or form. Fellows should be committed to using the Room on a regular basis throughout the 12-month period.

Applications are due on December 31, 2014.
