I don’t usually post personal life type of stuff here. This place isn’t for that. This place is for, you know, writing and writing-related news. But, since this is a weird, in-between bit of of personal life and writing news…here I go:
Starting January 1, 2016, I’ll be Director of Development at the Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters (GLCL).
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan—my hometown—the GLCL is a nonprofit whose mission is to encourage, promote, and celebrate the literary endeavors of writers in the Great Lakes region. This position will have me working to increase awareness of what the GLCL is all about, facilitating further community outreach, and spreading the Great Lakes love so people can see how truly rich this region is in its literary diversity and artistry.
As someone who is so—so!—passionate about this region AND the literary arts, this is a dream come true. I’m so excited to be working alongside the wonderful GLCL staff, and for people to get to know what they are all about.
Lots of goodness to come, for sure.
