My essay "Killing Starlings," which some of you may remember, (and which became quite notorious among a certain crowd...), just came out in the winter issue of Creative Nonfiction. I submitted it for an "Animals" theme, which the issue is devoted to. Creative Nonfiction was the first literary journal dedicated solely to the publication of literary creative nonfiction, and is still one of the biggest venues for it, so I was pretty excited when they accepted this essay. There should be info on the link if you want to check it out.
They also asked me to read at the KGB Bar in the East Village, which is apparently quite the legendary old Russian/Communist bar. If anyone happens to be in the area, I'd love to see you there. Info from the CNF newsletter:
We're also pleased to announce An Evening with Creative Nonfiction, a three-part reading series at the legendary KGB Bar in New York City. The first will be held Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 7 p.m. and will feature animal-themed readings by select contributors to #40:

Randy Fertel, "A Triumph of Preservation"
Kateri Kosek, "Killing Starlings"
