Overview

I believe that while the story structure remains similar to what Artistotle handed down to us, individual stories have a home and that also needs to be discovered.  If someone is from an oral culture can their words be contained in a short story or would a play be better? So the audience can actually hear the words rather than their summary.   And so on and so forth.  In this section I offer a variety of writing samples.  I have excluded short stories and published feature stories.

My work has been reprinted in newspapers, and in texts, some of which include:  “Choices of the Heart,”  Writing on the Stream of Reading, Lewis Meyer, (ed.), D.C. Heath Publish­ing Co.,1991.  This college writing text in­cludes American writers such as Joan Didion, James Bald­win, Annie Dillard and Alice Walk­er.

Some of my newspapers columns, work that earned me a First Place Award from the New York Press Association, have also been reprinted in book collections.  These include:   “Notes from the Trial,” Alternative Press Annual, (Philadelphia:  Te­mple Uni­versi­ty, 1986), “The Afrikaner,” Utne Reader:  The Best of the Alternative Press, (October, l985); “Through the Lens of Lewis Hine,” Hastings-on-the-Hudson Historical Society, Fall l984.
