As promised in earlier posts, my series of lyrical essayistic vignettes, Map for a Forgotten Valley, are now available to be read online at The New Haven Review.
I’m interested to see what readers might make of these dispatches on place, environment, history and local culture. It’s a very different type of writing I’ve done in these pieces, and I found different muscles engaged while writing them than I usually use for fiction. It was a good experience, and I’d like to write more of them, to continue writing in this series occasionally. There is one other vignette in the series soon to be published in Muse, a Cleveland magazine. I’ll post info on that one when it becomes available too.
