The Owen Barfield Award for Excellence

I just learned today that I will be the recipient of The Owen Barfield Award for Excellence, given by the Barfield Estate.

Watch the film about Barfield I co-produced and co-wrote below.

This isn't quite finished, but feel free to have a look:

Joss in June Comes to MTSU




Middle Tennessee State University will play host to the second Joss in June Conference this coming Summer, to be held on campus in (most likely) MTSU's beautiful new Student Center, with attendees staying at Murfreesboro's DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. After a reception on Friday night (6/26/15), the conference will take place on Saturday (6/27/15). Saturday evening and Sunday will be open for those wishing to experience Nashville (30 miles away). The conference website is here.

The conference's co-directors are the English Department's Dr. David Lavery, PhD candidate  Cori Mathis, and recent MA graduate Stephanie Graves.
