Hard to believe…

vermont 008…that I first taught in the MFA program at Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2006. Showing up in Vermont in January and July? Sleeping in a dorm room?  Eating cafeteria food? Hmmmm. Boot Camp for Writers!  Who thought THAT was a good idea?

During the rest of the year, I read my students’ material…the amazing and the not so amazing–because that’s the reality of drafts.  We have to moosh and squish a lot of clay and shape and re-shape before anything wonderful emerges.  I do author visits and put in my volunteer hours with Ethiopia Reads and am reminded of the magic that happens when authors do find their way to that something wonderful…

The magic of readers.
