Mason Homecoming: Fiction on the Fly

I’ll be hosting two events this week as part of a programming partnership between George Mason University’s Creative Writing Program and this year’s Homecoming—and what an honor to be working with three great alums and one of the outstanding students currently enrolled in our MFA program!

On Tuesday, February 8, I’ll join alum John Copenhaver, MFA student Jihoon Park, and registered Homecoming participants as they write some “Fiction on the Fly”—inspired by opening and closing lines selected by the audience. And on Saturday morning, February 12, we’ll host a kids’ version of the program with two alums, Emily Bliss and Carol Mitchell.

For information, visit the Mason Homecoming page, and don’t miss more of this week’s other events—I think I’ve bit off far more than I can chew, yikes!
