My formal educational background is in journalism and writing, with an Honors Degree from Middle Tennessee State University and majors in both journalism and English. An ongoing project which I was asked to “commandeer” in the Fall of 2009 is the literary arts webzine, Nashville Skyline. Working as an invited circle of six active contributing writers, we choose a quarterly theme on which to focus our prose and poetry, with the additional slant to connect it to Nashville arts and/or culture. We also feature local photographers, visual artists and musicians.
Personal essay is the style I to which I am most drawn. “Body Language Ephemerals” is one of many published personal essays.
I also write dance guidebooks for TPAC Education, a leader in arts education. Some of the guideboooks I have recently authored include Pilobolus, Cas Public, Ballet Hispanico, Diavolo Dance Theater, MOMIX and Urban Bush Women. Guidebooks for other arts disciplines include Freedom Sings and Cranked.
