Next week: Interview with author Erika Dreifus

Save the date! Next Friday we'll be hosting author Erika Dreifus as she continues a Blog Tour for her new collection of short stories, Quiet Americans.

I met Erika in the summer of 2004 when we were both studying writing with the Prague Summer Program. Since then, she's been writing original work while sharing daily tips, resources and more with readers through her Practicing Writing blog and newsletter.

Erika never tires of creating and and sharing useful information with the writing community. She organized and moderated an AWP panel about online teaching that I was on just last week during the annual conference. She also presented Beyond Bagels and Lox: Jewish-American Fiction in the 21st Century and shares her handout on her website.

I hope you will help me in warmly welcoming Erika in one week when she stops her on her Blog Tour. In the meanwhile, you might want to read what she said on some of her earlier stops.
