the art of trespassing in your city
Yes, it’s true, I edited a collection of short stories. And indeed, I am amazing - er, amazed at the talent amassed therein. But enough about me. I’m very pleased to announce that we’re launching this baby into space in four cities over the next couple weeks. If we happen to pass by your town, please come out and say hi! There will be readings, laughter, tears, etc. All launches are free to attend.

About the book:
The Art of Trespassing is an anthology of 13.5 new stories about sneaking in, crossing over, and breaking through. Written by thirteen wire-cutting writers, each piece in this collection invites us to consider the relationships between people and the spaces they move through–real or imagined, geographical and personal–and reminds us that sometimes the best stories lie in the places between, the cracks where the weeds are poking through.
