On seeking referees...is it just me?

Started Jul 25, 2013 0 Replies

Whether it’s a manuscript submission, article pitch, job application, fellowship application, awards submission I prefer to stand on my own merit, to let my writing and record speak for me. You…Continue

The Waiting Game or The Scraps of Things

Musical Youth, the manuscript of mine that placed second for the Burt Award in 2014 and is soon to be published, was fresh in my mind, recently, as I dug through my e-folder filled with scraps of things – unfinished things, ideas for things. If nothing fresher is present-please, I sometimes go, during my writing time, to this folder and rip and stitch these unfinished things. On this occasion, I opened a doc entitled The Guitar Lessons. Here’s part of the synopsis:“… a girl who … didn’t believe…See More

Five A.M. Epiphany*

It occurs to me that blogging (at least for some of the bloggers I follow) is a kind of therapy. You get it out, you release it, it’s gone…only unlike therapy, tons of folks are going to read about it and maybe judge you for it, but fuck it, you’ve released it, what do you care. And I suppose that’s what I do when I write. There’s an emotional disconnect that’s already set in by the time I actually publish the book, story, whatever… I  no longer feel exposed or embarrassed or protective of…

Personal Highlights from NILF and the Nature Isle

Photo by Celia Sorhaindo - me reading at the Nature Island Literary Festival.

So the question I think I got most at the Nature Island Literary Festival was some version of what do you do? Ironic, considering I was at a literary festival, but understandable when you consider that most of us aren’t…

Apologies Joanne for misplacing your "house" -- and I should know as Hillhouse is the high school in my hometown!

I'll check into that! I'd love to do another literay festival. And I agree, let's stay connected. If I can ever get you out my way. . . I'l keep you in mind. Who knows where things might lead.

At 3:56pm on October 18, 2012, Christine Lincoln said…

Of course I remember you and your beautiful writing. I'm really excited to see your book has come to fruition. I can't wait to order a copy. What are you working on now? I'm still plugging away. I write full time and currently I'm working on a story collection. I have a novel that's 2/3 done, but these stories were speaking so loudly I had to give an ear to them. I'd love to get back to the Caribbean though.

Hi Joanne, thanks for the friend request. It's really good to see you again. Love the picture.

Hi Joanne, hope is going well with your book. Hard work, isn't it?! Ciao cat

hi!  I'm not sure... you mean to submit to great group reads consideration??  I would go to the WNBA website and email someone there -- they tend to work with established publishing houses. I just read the books that's all:)!!  WNBA is more of  a networking group ... does that help??  Thanks for reading my post!!  Best, Caroline

Hey Joanne, jus twanted to say hi to another Island writer. I am here on St. Croix and rarely see anyone from the islands. I am was smiling when I saw Calabash as my son just worked on those for Ag Fair here on STX.

Hi Joanne! Thanks for the friendship add. BTW, I put "The Boy from Willow Bend" on my wish list at Amazon. I've been reading some Caribbean literature lately and want to read more.
