Poets Cate Marvin and Erin Belieu joined forces in 2009, along with several other writers, after growing weary of sensing that women's voices were neglected in major publications. They wanted to find out if their suspicions were true, and from this desire, VIDA was born! Marvin and Belieu invited several women, myself included, to join forces and begin a "VIDA Count."
Thanks to everyone who followed my live tweets from AWP last week! It was an exhausting but fun (and educational) conference. Never having been before, I wasn't sure what to expect. Here are a few things I learned:
1. Bloggers dress up, writers dress down
Unlike at the BlogHer13 conference, where women donned dresses and heels despite the fact that 99.5% of the attendees were other women, at AWP most people wore jeans. And…Continue
Right now, I am at my desk preparing my seminar for tomorrow, but my thoughts keep straying from Holocaust testimony―this week’s subject, as it happens―to the fate of a close friend. My friend is in the hospital recovering from surgery, but probably not recovering from the cancer that made the surgery necessary. It is not all that strange for me to be thinking of her as I try to concentrate on work. I’ve just taught one of her essays, an essay on the use of metaphor in literary texts representing the Holocaust. You may know the author, but I don’t want to violate her privacy by going any further. The singular identity of this friend matters to me, of course, but that is not my subject. Nor is the essay she wrote, which I have always loved.
In his work on friendship (friendship between men) Derrida writes somewhere: one always leaves before the other. (Every once in a while…Continue
This week, as I dug into my writing, I got to the point most of us get to when we feel bogged down by the work. Suddenly my shiny, new idea was mired in a couple really bad first chapters. In fear of failure, I found distraction in other projects. I haven't yet abandoned my manuscript. Despite the mess that faces me, I believe in my idea enough to keep slogging through it and not give up.
When I feel really hopeless, I turn to my online writing pals.They encourage me to keep going. My author friend T.J. Loveless sent me this message today: Remember this, my friend: First drafts don't have to be perfect. They just…Continue
It is a strange thing, to be a memory…. I write from a moment in my own past—from within my memories. In fact, I realize that I am my memories. I am everything that I remember up to this point in my life. I drift between the past and the future—living and dreaming and thinking in the past, but writing in my own future.
I know that I will survive and one day live in Eretz Yisrael, but then I will be a different…

Bibi Netanyahu and Jerry Brown were talking about solving water problems, but I was lat for my workout!
It was 10:15, and I was driving to my workout, late, as usual, when my phone rang.
“There’s something going on at the Computer History Museum,” my personal trainer said over the Bluetooth connection in my car. “Some thing to do with Israel. They blocked off the street, so you have to park at the movie theater..”
I thanked her and took the route that led to the Century…
