Much of my time over the next six months will be devoted to Think-Write-Publish Science and Religion, a new project at Arizona State University, funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, designed to “mobilize the power of creative nonfiction to generate and convey thoughtful and inspiring accounts on the relationship of science and spirituality.” Events will be held in Washington, DC, Arizona, and Pittsburgh.
I will also be attending the 2017 50th Anniversary AWP Conference in Washington, roaming the massive bookfair and participating in a panel titled “The Multi-Headed Beast: Challenging Genre in Creative Nonfiction.”
On March 23rd, I will be speaking at University of South Florida as part of the Blank Pages: Creative Writing Symposium.
I will be returning to teach in the incomparable Kenyon Review Writers Workshops from June 17-24.
In July, I will be teaching in the seaside village of Dingle, Ireland, for Bay Path University (July 22-29).
And somewhere in all of that, I will write a new book.
