I love my class at the Loft, which started last week. What an amazing group of women! I love teaching online, but there is nothing like being in a physical space with a group of mother writers. I leave class elated and inspired. Thank you, ladies!

Also, I wanted to let you know that the Parenting Express 2012 short story (memoir) contest guidelines are posted. Submissions open November 30, and there are a ton of prizes for the winner and runners-up. Parenting Express is an online monthly journal based out of Australia. Submit. Submit. Submit.

I'm still getting up by 5 am, but so far these mornings have been full of class prep and grant writing. Still, I'm working on it.

Lastly, don't forget about the 5th Annual Mother Words reading at Open Book next week:

Thursday, October 13 - 7 p.m.

A reading and reception with the wonderful and talented Jill Christman and Sonya Huber! Join us!

It looks like you can only enter the contest if you're a resident of Australia. Awwww.

Pickygirl, thank you for catching that!!! Sorry folks, you can only enter if you live in Australia! I was so excited to share the news, that I didn't read it carefully.
