Well, we finally got this off the ground (repackaged as the Summer Sessions), thanks to seven brave writers who brought to the rooms the exact kind of passion and honesty I was hoping for. It always strikes me as beautiful the simple desire to write, to share, and to work, and when there is so much that's personal on the line, the beauty inspires the teaching, and like a tornado the energy in the workshop continues to rise up and up. While this sounds exhausting and perhaps intimidating, the energy required to keep going creates and feeds itself. So I want to thank those seven writers for fulfilling this particular dream of mine, for making that energy possible, and for sharing themselves and their own particular dreams. I also want to thank Manny at Garfield Artworks for generously sharing his time and place.
