Place For Writers is having an event at Black Box Theater on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017. I’ll be reading from my political critique and ice cream manifesto:

I Address You, America

F*&k You, Rum Raisin

There’s guaranteed to be several great writers performing. Come out and show some support to our community!

Read Katie Sherman’s great interview with Agent Victoria Capello in South 85.

"Last January, Converse College’s low residency MFA program welcomed Victoria Cappello. Cappello is a New York agent with The Bent Agency. Founded in 2009, The Bent Agency has represented over 25 New York Times bestsellers. It was started by Jenny Bent, the previous Vice President of Trident Media Group, who wanted clients to benefit from the tailored support only a boutique agency could offer. Cappello spent several years learning under Bent as her personal assistant before building her own client list for the company. Now, she shares some insight into the industry, rejection, and her opinion of the MFA process."
