I'll be teaching in Berkeley's new summer writing program this summer with some of my oldest pals: Sam Chang (who read countless early drafts of Meeting Faith), Andrew Lam (my PBS buddy), Camille Dungy and Shane Book.
And I'm very excited to get to know the talented Justin Torres, whom I saw read from We the Animals just seconds before he became huge.
The program has everything: master classes, readings, panels, portfolio prep, novel sessions - you name it! Check out the brochure. Applications due ASAP.
