PEN USA Emerging Voices Program

I was recently invited to be one of six mentors for the 13th annual PEN USA’s Emerging Voices Program, a distinguished fellowship program to support writers from culturally diverse communities in LA during the early stages of their writing career.  I am mentoring African-American writer Natashia Deon, who is working on her first novel, The Spinning Wheel, set on the eve of the Civil War about three outcast women.
