Congrats to these LM staff members!

 

Ona Gritz, Columnist: "My first full-length collection of poems will be out soon. Geode was chosen as a finalist for The Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award and is forthcoming from their press in February. It is now available for pre-order at their online store.

"Of the collection, writer Hettie Jones writes:  'Ona Gritz writes her life in a sequence of beautifully observed and crafted moments, with superb control, not a line out of line. Disabled yet unsparing of herself, she claims her kin. But her emotional depth, her honesty, and the clarity of her voice will reach every reader--she’s akin to us all. This is a fine collection.'"

Kate Haas, Creative Nonfiction Editor: "My essay, I've Earned It about anticipating the first day of school and some well-deserved time alone, was featured on Brain, Child's blog earlier this month."

Suzanne Kamata, Fiction Editor:  "I was invited to write a blog post for Writer's Digest. You can read it here. Also, I'm happy to report that I was awarded a Multicultural Work-in-Progress Grant for the sequel to my novel Gadget Girl by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

"And finally, I signed a contract to publish my novel The Screaming Divas (which I alluded to in my LM Literary Reflections essay, Writing After Midnight several years ago) with Merit Press. It will be edited by literary mama extraordinaire Jacqueline Mitchard!"

Kate Hopper, Literary Reflections Editor: "I was thrilled to be featured along with actor, writer, and storyteller Kevin Kling in Minnesota Monthly Magazine's fall Arts Preview. I am such an admirer of Kevin's work, so I was tickled to sit a a south Minneapolis cafe, where we got to interview each other this summer. You can read an excerpt of our chat here."
