I spend a lot of time working as a writer and editor for a couple of contract employers, with my publisher, Pearl Street Publishing here in Denver, keeping me most busy. Current PSP projects include Imagine A Great Election and The Know Something Project. Via the Know Something Project, which explores issues related to literature, law, publishing, and politics, I’m learning a great deal lately about how many of these areas of interest intersect. Most recently I’ve helped put together a series on Freedom of Expression that includes references not only to the inhumane treatment of Chinese writer-activists by the Chinese government, but to the subtle, increasingly worrisome ways in which our own political and financial centers of power are manipulated, interwoven, and deceptively presented to those who invest in them and are supposed to be served by them.
