Last spring, Beth Staples, the managing editor of Hayden's Ferry Review and Marginalia, asked me to write an essay for the "Writer's Life" feature of Marginalia, the magazine of the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing (who also publishes HFR) at Arizona State University.
She had read through this blog and the KMF website, and was excited at the opportunity to spread the word about KMF to the Center's 5,000+ mailing list. She said I could write about KMF, grief, or writing, some combination therein, and/or anything else. The essay that I came up with is published here, in the current Fall 2008 issue.
This essay is a really great opportunity to tell new folks about KMF. You might send Beth a big shout-out of gratitude via email, if the mood strikes you.
On a personal level, I am very proud of the essay that I wrote. I am honored that I was asked to write it. It would mean a lot to me if you would read it when you get a chance. Again, here's that link.
