Because wonders never cease, as I was wrapping up my last graduate workshop for my Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, and beginning to contemplate how I was going to pay off my student loans, I was offered the extraordinary opportunity to teach spiritual memoir this fall. Inprint is "Houston's premier literary non profit," and is the organization responsible for bringing the likes of Jonathan Franzen, Karen Russell, Salman Rushdie, Sandra Cisneros, and others, to town. I'm a Mary Karr super fan, and she is coming to do a reading through Inprint, in partnership with the new Hines Center for Spirituality and Prayer. To expand on this partnership the two organizations are offering spiritual memoir workshops, and that's where I come in.
Teaching a workshop like this is exactly what I had hoped to be able to do, someday, with my degree. This soon (I graduated twelve days ago) is really too good to be true. All that to say, I am grateful, and excited. The workshop is small, I think there are 11 spots.
I would love to see some of you fine folks fill them.
