I was one of 10 recipients of the 2019 Discovered Awards for Emerging Literary and Visual Artists—made possible, in part, with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. Presented in collaboration with Creative Sonoma, the Discovered exhibition at the Museum of Sonoma County (Nov. 19–Feb. 2) features five visual artists and five writers with a reading, panel discussions, workshops, and a multimedia video production by Culture Pop Films.
The professionally designed catalog, posted below, combines awardees' visual and literary work with their jurors' statements.
An excerpt of "Love, Unconditional" is featured from my essay collection in progress: Just Some Things We Can't Talk About.
Below, hear several award-winning writers of poetry and prose including judges Elizabeth Stark and Ellen Sussman, recorded May 11, 2020 on Zoom.
About 53 minutes in: I read an excerpt from my essay "Late Bloomer," which was published at Halfway Down the Stairs.
