loaves and fishes: berkeley and rona jaffe

it's been a long while since i felt like i belong in a place. i am in love with berkely, and want to make it home.

and in good, sustaining news: in about two weeks, i get to attend the bread loaf writers' conference as the bread loaf-rona jaffe foundation scholar in fiction. i am tremendously grateful  to both organizations for supporting me and my work. i'm even more grateful for the changes ahead.

Hi there,
Congratulations on the Rona-Jaffe! I've read some of your stories so I know it's well-deserved.

I'm also from Berkeley and also going to Bread Loaf. Let me know if you might want to carpool. You can email me at janet.may.miller at gmail.
Cheers,
Janet
