Happy New Year
It’s the last day of 2014, and tomorrow I’m kicking off the new year with something I never imagined doing–a radio broadcast. My short story “The Screenhouse” is one of the works featured on the New Year’s Day episode of The Platte River Sampler. Listen live on http://www.kzum.org at 6pm central if you want to catch my reading and interview.
If you’ve missed the previous episodes, you really are missing out. I just got caught up this morning, listening to the podcast from Christmas. Poetry, plays, fiction, and essays in styles as diverse as their creators showcase Nebraska’s talent. I’m thrilled to be included among them.Last summer the fortune cookie in my Chinese take-out promised, “Your fondest dream will come true within this year.” I suppose it has. What dreams will the new year bring?
Happy New Year to you. And may we all find something worth seeking in the months to come.
UPDATE.Here’s the podcast in case you missed the live episode:Platte River Sampler #5: The Screenhouse by Traci Robison; Poetry of Steve Gains; Poems of L. Adkins; Story of a Depression era shooting; Poems of Jules Rolf
Listen to the end to hear my friend Jules’ nature-inspired poems. Her “Following the Ground Ivy” is one of my favorites.
