Essays to Look Out for

It’s hard out here for a writer. I stay writing though, and all my just-for-funzies writing workshops like what I submit, so I suspect you’ll have a lot more to read soon. Be on the lookout for personal essays about these things:

  • Meeting my dad for the first time when I was 22
  • An awkward conversation I had with my high school creative writing teacher
  • An affair I had at the ripe age of 17
  • A conversation (or two) with my mom that helped me understand her better
  • Coming out as pansexual
  • A prank I pulled that went too far
  • Taking a Tinder date to explore an abandoned mansion
  • Getting stuck on a cruise during Hurricane Harvey
