Today’s Meditation

Follow on Instagram @cxshade and hashtag #shieldthejoyous.

While helpful and light-giving to everyone in today’s difficult times, the early intentions of these meditations were especially for those who have the disease of addiction in their lives: our loved ones struggle to survive it, our loved ones die.

Today’s Meditation is a project of the book Shield the Joyous.

Christopher X. Shade teaching at The Writers Studio in NYC

TWS-Logo_dark-2 reverse imageChristopher teaches writing, both fiction and poetry, at The Writers Studio in the West Village, NYC. Christopher’s class is the Level 1 introduction to the Writers Studio method. Visit the class schedule on the Writers Studio website.

From the website: “All students new to The Writers Studio NYC start with Level I. Since we approach teaching with our own method and vocabulary, even experienced writers with publications and/or MFAs will find plenty that is new and challenging in Level I. Our short weekly exercises are designed to stimulate students’ imaginations while also teaching a lot of nuts-and-bolts narrative strategies. Students learn that a narrative voice is born out of conscious creation and is not merely the voice we use when speaking or keeping a journal. We encourage students to turn autobiographical fragments into publishable work by using different narrative personas to tell their story in fiction and poetry.”

“Marseille Hunger” in Portland Review

Portland Review has published Christopher’s story, “Marseille Hunger.” The story is set in Marseille, France; similar in ways, in voice and themes, to Christopher’s novel, The Good Mother of Marseille (Paloma Press, 2019). But this story isn’t related to the novel, except by way of Marseille.
