Summer of Writing

With Luis Alberto Urrea
It started in Truchas, New Mexico with an inspiring three-day long conversation about poetry, readings and sharing with Ilya Kaminsky, Veronica Golos and Jeffrey Levine and poets from Boston, to Los Angeles, Washington to Louisiana.

Then off to Squamish, BC for a week at Quest Writer's Conference with Gregory Orr, Joy Harjo, Alicia Ostriker, Oliver de la Paz and Rebecca Brown. Re-connected with a VONA (Voices of Our Nation) sister and met a cohort of super talented, accomplished writers from Canada and the US.

Port Townsend, WA was my next stop - a week in a gorgeous location in a memoir workshop with the fabulous Wendy Call sharing space and soaking up readings by Luis Alberto Urea, Joseph Stroud, Gary Copeland Lilley and others.

Finally, back in New Mexico at MALCS (Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social) Summer Institute con el corazon en la mano - sharing ideas, cultura, poetry with an extraordinary group of Native American, Chicana and Latina women.
