Ms. Fagan, thank you for your beautifully written, eloquent, and courageous essay in the New York Times today. You are a wonderful writer and photographer and now I want to read your novels.
Love your pics
Jenni – Your essay in the NY Times, “An Illness, Inherited?” is one of the best pieces I have ever read. How beautiful. It is hard enough to just live and to try to understand ourselves a little bit. Hardest of all is to be nice to ourselves, to be gentle and forgiving. For some of us, anyway.
I will explore more of your writing. Thank you. And I was finally able to visit Scotland two years ago. I t was as beautiful as I thought it would be.
Good things to you…
Thank you Barbara, much appreciated! Jenni
Dear Ms. Fagan, my name is Guy Brookshire and I conduct interviews for http://www.electronicliterature.com, a website run out of Brooklyn, New York. I would very much like to conduct a brief email interview with you. Can I interest you in this?
Hello Guy, yes, I will get back to you.
Hello Ms Fagan, I am at the helm of a new platform for writers of short fiction coming out of Summerhall, Edinburgh, via Radio Summerhall, which is itself very new. I was wondering (hoping) If you might dare to give me some other way to contact you and I could hopefully inspire you to get involved at some level, maybe do a reading at some point?
I hope this hasn’t been too intrusive or presumptuous.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry, this feels incredibly forward, I do apologise.
Yours sincerely, Roddy.
I will mail you soon, Roddy.
Hello Jenni, just read you have discovered Jessie Kesson. So fitting. I was a friend of Jessie’s and worked with her in Tynepark School in Haddington – the basis for ‘You’ve never slept in mine’ – in 1972. Jessie was in her 50s, I was 18. Many many unique memories. I’d be happy to share them with you if you’re interested.
Hello Suzie, I’d love to hear more, what a fascinating story for you to be able to tell! If you send an e-mail through my agency (Tracy Bohan at The Wylie Agency) then I can get back to you, or follow me on twitter! Thanks, Jenni
