International Artist Call: Study Grant for Switzerland and Residencies in Brazil and Detroit

    Greetings all...If any of you are local (in Western Massachusetts), I will be doing my last two local readings this coming week—this Tuesday, Oct. 25 at the University of Massachusetts and on Thursday, Oct. 27th at Greenfield Community College. You can get details of those events from my website: Just go to 'events' and look for October. I'll also be in Philly the following week and other places (Maryland, Michigan, and San Francisco—all dates are now posted on my website).

    Also, coming soon: pictures and testimonials from Mira's List fans who got their residency info from my site. If you had a great residency in the last couple years and you got it from my site, please send me a picture or two, plus a link to your website if you have one, plus a couple sentences about WHERE it was and why it was good for you. Thanks! Send this stuff to: and please—no large jpgs over 400 or 500 kb because I have a slow connection.

    Onward and upward—the following three opportunities are from the wondrous site
