About “Alys's Articles”

Short and long essays about “the life” follow. I’ve separated them into four categories (or boxes), which I’ve labeled memoir, travel, and academic letters. I’ve also included a poetry file. It’s pained me to do this because I’m a lumper and not a splitter. I try, in everything I write, to push on the boundaries of genre, so as to make the concept of categorization even more nebulous. But because my audience includes splitters, I’ve classified everything, and in this way, made my work (as some would say) accessible. Note: many additional short stories can be found in the About Us section.
