Artist in Residence

Two days of an outhouse?! I've been selected to be an artist in residence at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which, as many of you know, is my favorite stomping grounds. Bud, Cole, and I will be there July 5 -18, living in a cabin in the woods, no running water or electricity. I'm anxious for the getaway, and thankful to be offered such a peaceful place to write. More exciting fellowship news to come!
