November 23, 2008

Congratulations to Seth Brown, whose WordPlay reading got rave reviews in the MCLA Beacon! The reviewer, Mark Burridge, praised Seth’s reading from his latest project, From God to Verse (a rendering of the entire Torah into rhyming couplets) as well as his fabulous freestyle abilities.

October and November inkmails

November 17, 2008

The two most recent issues of inkmail have belatedly been added to the Inkberry website! Go and enjoy the October 2008 inkmail and the November 2008 inkmail. Of particular note is this announcement, which I’ll reprint here too:

Jill Gilbreth, Instructor at MCLA and former Executive Director of Inkberry has been honored by BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 2008, edited by Salman Rushdie. Her story “When the Stars Begin to Fall” was published in the Fall 2007 issue of Ploughshares and has been included in the list of the “100 Other Distinguished Stories of the Year,” along with Inkberry Advisory Board member Jim Shepard.

Congratulations to Jill and Jim!
