1/16: Just back from the W.A.G.E. Summit in New York, where an amazing team of board members and supporters (among which group I enthusiastically claim membership) hashed out the details of W.A.G.E. Certification. Expect to see a fee schedule and certification process rolled out this year, beginning in New York City. Sign up for updates here and join the coalition here. W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) demands payment for making the world more interesting.

3/31: I was surprised to find that my book happened on Amazon the other day, complete with twitter-egg cover image. I’m guessing this is what happens when the publisher registers the ISBNs? In any case, it’s happening…

10/4: Along with my normal teaching this fall (this and this), I’m happy to be heading to Oslo next week to teach a workshop on writing for artists I’m calling No More Arty Bollocks. Pretty much what it says on the tin.

9/20: Anna Lund and I have been lucky to secure funding from the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden at Linköping University and from Linnaeus University to invite researchers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Scotland for a workshop with us in Växjö about the arts and cultural policy. Looking forward to seeing Torun, Erik, Håkon, Johannes, Lisa, Åsa, and Ian there later this week!
