Despite everything, I still managed to make a little art in 2016. Here is the round-up for posterity, if posterity was to really care.
“Unsafe at Any Speed.” Five performances of my one-man show as part of Minnesota Fringe Festival.
Spoken-Word / Storytelling Performance:
“Ghost on Hennepin” as part of the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers – Word Brew Event.
“The Way of the Cane.” One performance as part of Patrick’s Cabaret CaberABLE.
“Now Arriving on Track 12” as part of The Not So-Silent Planet.
Excerpt from “Unsafe at Any Speed” as part of American Underground.
Stage Plays Produced:
“At the Edge of Flight.” Three performances as a part of Gadfly Theatre Company’s Final Frontier Festival: Heroes and Villains.
“At The Edge of Twilight, Melissa Remembers Flight,” “Ghosts of the Places You Live” and “The Fifth Nazgul” as part of MarsCon.
The Not-So Silent Planet Episodes 4 & 5.
“Impostor Syndrome” with the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers.
I think my one disappointment is that, for the first time in a decade, I had no new fiction or poetry published. That stings a little. I do have things out there on submission (1 novella and 3 short stories) and looking up at the list, it seems obvious my career is moving more and more toward the stage, but as an artist, I still identify primarily as a fiction writer. To have zero new publication this year…like I said, it stings.
