Dear Faculty and Students,

As I mentioned at the summer residency, I put together a brief survey to help me gather some information about our program. Part feedback, part suggestion box, the survey is anonymous and open to everyone. Please take a moment in the next week or so to complete it. 

Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.

MIXED UP is out…mostly

Hi all,


Hope the semester is treating you all well. My latest book, the hybrid cocktail recipe/fiction anthology Mixed Up: Cocktail Recipes (and Flash Fiction) for the Discerning Drinker (and Reader)is out now. Well, to a certain extent. It will arrive in most bookstores on October 3, but jumped the gun and started shipping two weeks ago.

It’s a handsome volume:

The anthology includes recipes and anecdotes/flavor text from Molly Tanzer, and short-short stories by authors including WestConn MFA mentor Libby Cudmore, bestseller Jeff VanderMeer, Carmen Maria Machado (whose own short story collection is poised to do extremely well this autumn), novelist and writing teacher Benjamin Percy, and many others. Some of you may remember a residency workshop on proposals back a couple of years ago—you saw the proposal for this book, then called Flash Cocktails.

So if short stories, multiple genres of fiction between the same covers, gift books, or cocktail culture is something you’re interested in, why not pick it up now?
