Appearances at the Tucson Festival of Books

This Saturday afternoon, I’ll have the pleasure of giving a reading and moderating a panel at the Tucson Festival of Books, an event that attracts upwards of 130,000 attendees each year, making it one of the top-five literacy festivals in the country. This festival, completely free and open to the public, funded only by sponsors & exhibitors, has donated $1.25 million to local literacy providers since its inception seven years ago. More than 1,800 community volunteers help the event run. It is a sight to behold! »

New Review Published in The Rumpus

My review of John Wray’s The Lost Time Accidents was published in The Rumpus last week. All are invited to read, comment, and share»


If you want an editor with enormous professional integrity who isn’t afraid to tell you the truth about your work, but knows all about fragile egos and therefore murders your babies with courteous brutality; who is suitably persnickety without being pedantic; who always respects the writer’s voice and is just as committed to your project as you are: give Erin Wilcox a try. You will not be disappointed.”
