Who Lives Here
This is the webhome of Diana Friedman, writer, not to be confused with Diana Friedman, author of Sitcom Style or Diana Friedman, Texas Divorce Lawyer, or Diana Friedman, recent graduate of Brown University, or Diana Friedman, activist from the same town as me, or Diana Friedman, 4H professional extraordinaire, or Diana Friedman, reviewer of thrash metal concerts, or all of the other Diana Friedmans being born and named this very moment and with whom we will all eventually have to share valuable Google real estate.
So what exactly does this Diana Friedman do?
First and foremost, she writes: Short stories, essays, articles and one novel, All That You Can Leave Behind, a contemporary tale of desire, dislocation and U2 infatuation. With any luck it will be out in the world in the not-too-too distant future. A chapter excerpt is appearing in an anthology in autumn, 2013. Check back here for details.
Diana's stories and articles have found homes in various places including the Baltimore Sun, Newsweek, Flyway:Journal of Writing and Environment, Whole Earth Review, Bethesda Magazine, Ithaca Women’s Anthology, the Legendary, Sport Literate, and Stone Highway Review, among others .
Diana also facilitates creative voice and vision workshops.
