I wrote and published extensively throughout the course of a twenty-five year academic career (I was an anthropologist), thinking it would satisfy my craving life-long for writing. It didn't. What I really wanted to be writing was fiction and creative nonfiction. I've made a transition now, and I am working on a revision of a completed novel, as well as on bits and pieces of personal narrative/memoir. I've taken a novel writing workshop with Michelle Wildgen, and a memoir writing workshop with Chris Chambers, both at the Madison Writers' Studio. I would like to find (or establish) one or more groups with fiction and/or creative/narrative nonfiction writers who are interested in the ongoing process of producing work, workshopping it, revising it, and pushing it through to submit for publication. I love to read the work of other writers and offer thoughtful and constructive feedback, and I love to discuss the process of writing. I've learned that I do my best work when I know I will have friendly and critical readers waiting for me to show what I have.

Founded in 1998, Meridian has featured the works of numerous Pulitzer Prize Winners, National Book Award Winners, and established writers. However, as a magazine edited by young writers, we value nothing more than showcasing tomorrow's talent, often publishing a new author's first story or poem.

Like most literary magazines, we recommend reading our journal before submitting. To read the latest issue online, click here. Our editors are MFA students, emerging authors who aspire to create tomorrow's literary fiction and poetry, and that should tell you something about the kind of work we're looking for: fresh, new writing. We're not hugely experimental (publishing mostly realist fiction and lyric/narrative free verse) but we're open to works that play with form and reader expectations, as long as the work is serious in its efforts and treats our readers with the respect they deserve. Literary nonfiction is welcomed.

I am the author of the memoir The View From Breast Pocket Mountain. Winner of the SPR Book Awards GOLD PRIZE and the Book Readers Appreciation Group Medallion. 

For 15 years I wrote the column "Crossing Cultures" for The Japan Times (Japan's oldest and largest English-language newspaper) and the column "Another Look" for Chunichi Shimbun, a Japanese daily.  

I am originally from NYC and have lived in rural Japan since 1975. I'd welcome interacting with a group interested in and/or writing memoir and creative non-fiction.
