Last week, I found out by flipping through my Facebook home page, that one of my Six Word Memoirs was chosen as the Memoir of the Day by the fine folks at Smith Mag. So I thought I’d archive the love (screen shots from the Smith Mag site, which you should totally visit. Click them to enlarge!). Funny thing is, I posted this almost two years ago! So things WILL catch someone’s eye eventually. Put the work out there and be patient. 🙂
As for the memoir itself, this has always been my inner response whenever I’d hear the now culturally entrenched “You’re a poet and didn’t know it!” phrase. While my actual poetry writing days are behind me, I’d like to think I’ve carried on the poetic torch into my playwriting and prose.
So, Thank you, Smith Mag!
By the way, Next up for me: I’ll be a featured reader at next month’s Story Club on November 4. ‘Twill be way cool!
