I'm a writer who supports my family teaching at-risk kids. I'm working on a book about writing and will test drive sections of it here among all sorts of other things. 

I wasn't ready to make a site devoted to just one thing because I can't figure out which of my interests to stick to. I've decided instead to create a magazine about writing, teaching, running, prose poetry, analog living, records, reading, and whatever else I can think of.
