Callen was invited to speak to an LGBT sexuality class at Edgewood College in mid-November. He talked about his writing and coming out experiences. One of the students noted that her father had all of Callen's book in his home library.
Proud Theater had multiple performances and workshops throughout the fall. The new chapter in Green Bay is already going and growing.

Poets included in the new 2019 Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets calendar were invited to read their entries at a poetry reading at A Room Of One's Own bookstore in Madison on Sunday, October 21. Callen read his poem, Mo(u)rning in America from the calendar and also read For Earl (murdered in Superior, Wisconsin, July 1984), his first nationally published poem.
Finishing touches are being put on a book about Callen's great-great-grandfather and great-great-uncle, among the earliest settlers in Wisconsin. It was originally written quite a few years ago and privately printed for family members, but after speaking in the California town that his great-great-grandfather founded, he decided to update it and publish it for those interested in the story and the history.
Callen had an essay accepted for an upcoming anthology. More details to be released as the publication is finalized.
