Jumpstart your writing in Salem

I’m thrilled to be teaching “Jumpstart your Writing” with a focus on creative nonfiction–memoir and personal essay–at the Salem Athenaeum–on six Wednesday evenings, 6-9 PM, beginning on Wednesday Sept 30. The class is sponsored by Grub Street. Please go to: Grub Street to sign up. I hope to see you there!

Come Join Me at Grub Street or Somerville Library!

I’m teaching a fun, hands-on one day workshop at Grub Street, “Get Writing: Short Memoir and Personal Essay” at Grub’s main location in downtown Boston. The class will take place on Friday Oct 24 from 10 am to 5 pm. This is a chance to come together, write, and energize your writing practice. For more info, and to sign up, check out:

I’m also going to be performing excerpts of my show with my friend Randy Ross in “He Said/He Said,” which features two middle-aged men–one straight, one gay–looking for love, connection and a good pierogi, in a free show at the West Branch of Somerville Library in Davis Square.
The show will take place on Thursday November 13 at 7:00 PM at the library, 40 College Avenue in Somerville.

The show is coming to Somerville on March 27!

I’m thrilled to be doing a new, improved version of my show at the Cervena Barva Press studio in the Somerville Armory, 191 Highland Avenue, just down the street from Somerville High School, on Thursday March 27 at 7:30 PM.
If you haven’t seen “One Man’s Journey through the Middle Ages,” OR if you haven’t seen it lately, this performance is for you. The studio is quite intimate, and a perfect space for a low-tech but heartfelt version of my life in middle age.

Be sure to get tickets in advance–there is limited seating–don’t get shut out! Watch this space for ticketing info!J Leblang Flyer_Sville 3-14
