Jerod, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that you are much admired (and missed!) in the Twin Cities literary community … so to see what you have created here and to have the privilege to experience it has been incredibly gratifying. What a fantastic week I’ve had, starting with teaching a workshop to some amazing young writers, followed by the time and this beautiful space to nudge my novel much further than I thought it could be nudged in just a week’s time. All I can think of is to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to you and Jaime and for all that you do for the writers and the creative spirit … truly inspiring and a gift that I will cherish! Thank you for having and supporting me and hoping to return soon.
