Two teachers, one special lecturer, seventeen participants, two weeks, one mountain lodge. Thirty-four manuscripts, eight exercises, 1,800,000 ponderosa pines, one very active family of ground squirrels, and one hot tub.
I plan to have caught up on my sleep by 2012.
Connie was wonderful to work with, a complete joy. The participants were hard-working, generous with each other, and amazingly gifted. If we don't get some great fiction out of this experience, I will be knocked flat.
Thanks to everyone who participated. You were great. Especially the ones who drank the Pepsi when I told you to.
