I am a 70-year-old “young poet” who is challenged by knowing so little about the craft, but have so many experiences to share. Over the last two weeks I have been honored to read my work at different Write On gatherings. Each time, I became a little more confident yet aware of how much there is to learn.
What a gift this residency has been for me. I bow to all who have made it possible — Jerod, Jamie, Anne, Shirley, and my husband. A special thanks to my Kentucky friend, Kay McLaughlin, who shared this rich experience. Door County has a special place in our hearts after a quarter century of visits with family and friends. Now, another facet has been added to our memories of this brilliant gem.
