Last month brought play time in the snow, lots of opportunities for sitting by the fire, extra writing time and the joy of meeting with loads of teenaged writers who hope to attend the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities. The first weeks of my Four Weeks of Fiction class also took place. We’ll finish up the class on these first two Tuesdays of March. (More posts on that to follow over the next couple of weeks.)
In addition to the usual teaching and writing work, I’ll be out and about reading, writing and piping this month.
Sunday, March 8: in the morning, I’ll be speaking with a book club about The Thorn Tree.
In the afternoon, I’ll be piping with the City of Greenville Pipes and Drums at Return to the Green, the family festival that precedes St. Patrick’s Day. It’s held at Fluor Field. Good times! https://returntothegreen.wordpress.com https://www.facebook.com/pages/City-of-Greenville-Pipes-and-Drums/95982159070
Saturday, March 22: a mindful flow writing workshop at Greenville Yoga–Write to the Heart. Get to the heart of what drives your life. http://greenvilleyoga.com/workshops/
Sunday, March 23: reading at Greenville County Museum of Art. I’m reading from my own novel, The Thorn Tree, and from the works of other Celtic Writers (just trying to extend the St. Paddy’s Day good-time vibe a little). There will also be connections to Owen Riley’s photography exhibit. http://www.gcma.org/pages/calendar/detail/event/c8/e186&DateOfEvent=03/22/2015
