This August 24-26th I’ll be attending a writer’s conference known as HippoCamp for the first time and leading a breakout session with my partner Parker Blaney. The session is called Writing Home.

HippoCamp is in its fourth year and is an outgrowth of Hippocampus Magazine, a terrific journal founded by Donna Talarico. It publishes only creative nonfiction (CNF, to writer nerds.) Full disclosure: my essay “Gun-Sitting” appeared there in June 2016, which was/is still such an honor.

At the upcoming conference, aside from getting to hang around with other writers and lovers of CNF, I will be close to home. HippoCamp takes place in Lancaster, PA, just a little ways west of my beloved Pottstown, so a visit there will certainly be in order. Can’t wait!
