Wow

Poetry collector Raymond Danowski truly ‘lived the dream.’ The thoughtfulness of his gift of 75,000 volumes to Emory University and his insistence that undergraduates would share in it have terrifically moved me.

The New York Times’ Sam Roberts writes a very good obituary.

“Writer navigates tech’s male culture in Seattle with acerbic wit”

Screen Shot 2017-11-28 at 5.03.35 PM

My friend and Ellavon alum Kristi Coulter made the cover of today’s Seattle Times. I can’t remember ever feeling so great witnessing a friend’s growing fame and success.

I have spent the entirety of my adulthood as a professional editor, and can’t even count how many published writers I have worked with. It’s got to be at least a thousand. Kristi is probably the best pure writer of them all. (Maybe tied with Robin Plan, a very different writer!)

(Her FB page is a total gas.)
