This has been a magical week. I was able to start a new novel, something that for me required plenty of room for contemplation; to write a book proposal; and to seriously work on a poetry project that has been languishing for years. Each project got the time and space needed, and I will leave feeling energized. I am so grateful to Jerod, Jaime, the Board members, and everyone else who has created something so special. Being able to hear Kalia [Yang, author of The Latehomecomer and The Song Poet] speak was a serendipitous and inspiring bonus.
With heartfelt thanks,
