Are you a performer of story or listener, both, other? Tell us a bit about yourself...
A performer. I've been a journalist n Boston for 28 years, writing mostly about music and movies, and have in recent years begun writing and publishing personal essays and short memoir pieces. I teach humorous writing and personal essay at Cambridge Center for Adult Ed and a bit at Lesley University. I love to read my written pieces aloud. My work centers on adolescence and young manhood, and the foibles, rites of passage, pressures, awkwardness, humor, pain and epiphanies everyday lives possess. They often take place in the 1960s, 70s and 80s in Queens, NY and Cambridge MA. I've just begun to tell stories, as opposed to reciting them, and it's a challenging, exciting, terrifying art-form!
