...left me feeling excited and energized. Thank you to everyone who came out to the reading on Thursday. What a great night, great audience, and what great surprises! Thank you to St. Peter's College and the Canada Council for the Arts; I'm so grateful to Barbara Langhorst for giving me and my work this opportunity. She'd asked me to give a short talk and slideshow as well, and out of that request evolved the beginnings of an essay that I am very excited about. Here I am presenting that work.
The three-day nonfiction workshop I led flew by. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing and enthusiastic group of writers. One has been a friend for a long time now. The others I met for the first time at the workshop. All of them had driven many miles to take part. Thank you to every one of the workshop participants for investing their money, time, and minds in this adventure. Cheers to them all!
