What a year 2016 has been! By compare, lively 2015 seems so happy and innocent. Yet there was good that the trumpery could not touch.
Before Trump became a viable, liable candidate, there was AWP LA, where I
had the privilege of moderating "Endangered Music: Formal Poetry in the
Twenty-first Century." The distinguished panelists included Annie Finch, Timothy Steele, and Amanda Johnston. The discussions continued for a month!
I celebrated the first anniversary of my corporation,
Larissa Shmailo, Inc,. which does business as Professor's Helper (TM)
(please see our services for the academic community at www.professorshelper.com). We are honored to serve academe, one professor at a time.
This summer, I was delighted that MadHat Press accepted my third
full-length poetry collection, Medusa's Country, with a brilliant cover
design by MadHat publisher, Marc Vincenz. Medusa's Country will be
launched at AWP 2017 in Washington.
And then, election night, 11/9.
We founded HOWL (Humanities Opposition World League), an international
anti-fascist collective of artists and scholars. Read our manifesto,
and consider joining us! https://119howl.wordpress.com/manifesto/
Last, but certainly not least, this week the New York Public Library
ordered copies of my novel, Patient Women, a dream come true. The novel
is also available in the Sarasota Library system, thanks to friend Gabrielle Lennon. And thanks to all my friends who are ordering Patient Women from their libraries!
Friends, we will survive, nay, thrive in 2017. Stay close, stay true,
and we can help one another through whatever this new year will bring.
