My colleague, Kristie Betts Letter, and I won a Fund For Teachers grant to attend the Ouray Writers' Retreat for a two week residency. We leave on Saturday (our last day of school is Thursday), and we will be chronicling our adventures on our new blog Freewomen of Letters. Check us out and read along as we attempt to complete two book drafts in two weeks!
In other CSUWP news, friend and colleague Heather Cyr (SI '06) is going to Scotland to study creative writing as part of the English Speaking Union's British Universities Summer School Program.
We are all excited to be spending our summers in a "state of constant composition", and bringing back new work and new insights to share with our students. Best of luck to all the Summer Institute Fellows for '07. You'll never be the same!
