 In this exquisitely poetic essay, first published in The Diagram and republished in Creative Nonfiction, Diana Xin takes our listeners back to her grandmother's rural village where she boils water for drinking and hangs her laundry on the line. "To accumulate so many years and so few regrets: this must be a life well lived," the writer explains. She takes us through the tragedies of her grandmother's life, the loss of family as one after one children and grandchildren move away, out into the world, into what seems like prosperity. But the writer is torn between the bounty of her grandmother's world and her own, more modern accommodations in Seattle. Come listen, get swept into Diana Xin's textural world.

I was thinking about this post that I did on the Maine Maritime Museum social media that was really successful. It was all of the ways you could get free admission to the museum. None of those were new. None of those had been introduced within the last year, but just reminding people of who we are, what we're doing, why we're doing it.” – Amanda Pleau, marketing and communications manager at Maine Maritime Museum   Links: Maine Maritime Museum: https://www.mainemaritimemuseum.org/exhibition/seachange/ Down East Magazine: https://downeast.com/ Bull Moose: https://www.bullmoose.com/ University of Southern Maine: https://usm.maine.edu/ Toms of Maine: https://www.tomsofmaine.com/ SeaChange: Darkness and Light in the Gulf of Maine: https://www.mainemaritimemuseum.org/exhibition/seachange/ Gulf of Maine EcoArts: http://www.gulfofmaineecoarts.org/ Roxane Gay: https://roxanegay.com/ Jo Ann Beard: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/117985.Jo_Ann_Beard Libby App: https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby “Mill Town: Reckoning With What Remains” by Kerri Arsenault: https://www.amazon.com/Mill-Town-Reckoning-What-Remains/dp/1250155932 The Mexico Chicken Coop: http://mexicochickencoop.letseat.at/ “Vacationland: True Stories From Painful Beaches” by John Hodgman: https://www.amazon.com/Vacationland-True-Stories-Painful-Beaches/dp/0735224803   Listen to Emma Dimock's episode on The PR Maven® Podcast.

Many writers dream of publication, but you can't fine tune your piece of writing, let alone pitch it to the right publisher, until you have a finished writing that draft. If only 5% of writers finish their first draft, how can you set yourself up for success to ensure you're part of that group?In today's episode, Erin is sharing how she finished her first draft in 2022!

Tune in for all this and more to finish that first draft! About Erin: For 15 years, Erin has worked as a magazine and book editor, encouraging each writer's individual voice and strengthening their writing goals.

As the years passed, she grew increasingly anxious, depressed, and angry until she realized that she had forgotten who she was beyond being a parent. Despite fearing her skills had atrophied, Erin started writing again. She first created her blog, Life Beyond Parenting, and then created the Parents Who Write podcast. Erin's current role as a podcaster and writing coach enables her to help parents pursue their writing dreams.She earned her MA in Writing from Johns Hopkins University, and she has finished the first draft of a fantasy-romance novel.

Ever feel like some things are just outside your ken? I'm that way with literary magazines. And I've never found the right retreat or residency, or applied for a grant, and I know sometimes it's just that I don't think I belong in that world.But worlds don't usually just reach out and drag you in. That's a fave theme of ours around here—you can't be published unless you write something, etc. If you want to be part of a literary world you have to find it and start looking around for a door. This podcast is ALL about finding doors. And knocking, and however you want to extend the metaphor—and it was great. As I've said before, you can tell a practical podcast by the number of links that end up in there, and there are a ton of useful links below. And let me add to all of it my favorite old school book on a similar topic, Making A Literary Life from Carolyn See. I hope this talk with Patrice inspires you to get OUT THERE.About our guest: Patrice Gopo is an award-winning essayist and the author of books for adults and children. Her essay collection, All the Colors We Will See, was Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. Her debut picture book, All the Places We Call Home, was inspired by one of the essays in her collection. She's the child of Jamaican immigrants, but she was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska—which gives her a pretty unique perspective on everything from racial identity formation and immigration to weather and life in the great outdoors. She's had essays in a ton of publications, including Catapult, Charlotte Magazine, Creative Nonfiction, and AFAR Magazine, and her essay “That Autumn” received a notable mention in the Best American Essays 2020—which is HUGE. She's also the recipient of a North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship and a Sustainable Arts Foundation Award—and I'm telling you all these details because literary magazines, grants and residencies are exactly what we're planning to talk about.Links from the PodLiterary MamaRelief: A Journal of Art and FaithPublisher's Weekly Lit Mag DatabaseFunds for Writers databaseClifford Garstang Poets & Writers: Literary MagazinesLit Mag News!Creative NonFiction Classes (Patrice mentioned teacher Lisa Olen Harris) North Carolina Arts CouncilPatricia Gopo's Grant Application TipsPatriceGopo.com Writing ResourcesSt. Nell's Humor Writing ResidencyNational Endowment for the ArtsSustainable Arts Foundation#AmReadingPatrice: Nothing Special, Desiree CooperWhen Stars Are Scattered, Omar Mohamed and Victoria JamiesonThe Anti-Racist Writing Workshop, Felicia Rose ChavezKJ: A Rather Haunted Life (Ruth Franklin's biography of Shirley Jackson) Writers, I've got exciting news from Author Accelerator.

Today on our show, we're talking about beginnings and endings. What is an effective way to begin a story and a satisfying way to end? The story we bring you on this episode is an amazing example of how to start with appropriate grounding and how to land/end the essay like a gymnast. The narrator isn't just a beginning and ending genius, she also uses lingo associated with her theme. This style is effective, because the reader feels more drawn in. Another example of that same type of inclusive linguistic style was discussed on Episode 110: How to Write About Death: Use an Obsession. Jackie Ashton told the story of her best friend's cancer by using the situation of a Golden State Warriors obsession and basketball lingo throughout. Shawna Kenney submitted the essay you will hear today and we were blown away. Her story is called Words with Mom.Shawna Kenney is the author of four books, the latest being Live at the Safari Club: A History of HarDCore Punk in the Nation's Capital 1988-1998.

Short Nonfiction Collections - Book 91 Title: Short Nonfiction Collections Overview: Thousands of short stories are available through our Short Nonfiction Collections series from classic authors Ernest Hemingway, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Joyce, J. D. Salinger, William Faulkner, Jack London, Anton Chekhov, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Walt Whitman, Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Frederick Douglass, Charles Darwin, O Henry, Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, and many other classic authors. These nonfiction short stories provide accurate information regarding a real-world topic and may be presented either objectively or subjectively. Nonfiction is one of the fundamental divisions of narrative writing (specifically, prose) — in contrast to fiction, largely populated by imaginary characters and events, though sometimes ambiguous regarding its basis in reality. Each of the short story collections is a book of short stories that may or may not share a tone, theme, setting, or characters with one another. While specific claims in a nonfiction work may prove inaccurate, the typical author genuinely aims to be truthful at the time of their composition, offering accounts of historical or empirical facts. Systematic reporting of the beliefs of others in a nonfiction format is not necessarily an endorsement of the veracity of those beliefs, but rather an exercise in representing the topic. These short story collections are made up of smaller texts—the individual short stories—in order to form a superior whole. In spite of this, each short story does not lose any of its meaning or narrative independence by being included in a collection. This does not mean that these short stories do not gain any new meaning from being included in a collection, though. Because each story's context has changed, surrounded by other stories with their own meanings and tones, the meaning and tone of any individual story might also be affected. In addition to the individual stories, short story collections may also include notes by the author.

Short Nonfiction Collections - Book 83 Title: Short Nonfiction Collections Overview: Thousands of short stories are available through our Short Nonfiction Collections series from classic authors Ernest Hemingway, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Joyce, J. D. Salinger, William Faulkner, Jack London, Anton Chekhov, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Walt Whitman, Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Frederick Douglass, Charles Darwin, O Henry, Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, and many other classic authors. These nonfiction short stories provide accurate information regarding a real-world topic and may be presented either objectively or subjectively. Nonfiction is one of the fundamental divisions of narrative writing (specifically, prose) — in contrast to fiction, largely populated by imaginary characters and events, though sometimes ambiguous regarding its basis in reality. Each of the short story collections is a book of short stories that may or may not share a tone, theme, setting, or characters with one another. While specific claims in a nonfiction work may prove inaccurate, the typical author genuinely aims to be truthful at the time of their composition, offering accounts of historical or empirical facts. Systematic reporting of the beliefs of others in a nonfiction format is not necessarily an endorsement of the veracity of those beliefs, but rather an exercise in representing the topic. These short story collections are made up of smaller texts—the individual short stories—in order to form a superior whole. In spite of this, each short story does not lose any of its meaning or narrative independence by being included in a collection. This does not mean that these short stories do not gain any new meaning from being included in a collection, though. Because each story's context has changed, surrounded by other stories with their own meanings and tones, the meaning and tone of any individual story might also be affected. In addition to the individual stories, short story collections may also include notes by the author.
