Happy New Year!
2011 is here, and after a short trip to Israel and Palestine I am ready for it, My new year started with a generous award from the Society of Authors in the UK – the John C Laurence Award which ‘offers funding to works which help to improve understanding between races’. The Society of Authors’ grants and awards are meant to help writers work on their next projects, and I thank them for choosing mine, a collection of intertwined Israeli-Palestinian short stories.
If you happen to be in Geneva on January 15th, don’t miss Ben Crystal’s workshop at the Geneva Press Club. A talented actor and writer, he will help us at the Geneva Writers’ Group lift our words off the page. More details herewww.genevawritersgroup.org
I wish you all a productive, inspiring and peaceful 2011,
