I’ll be back at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, this summer as the visiting writer during session 3. I won’t be teaching a workshop, but every afternoon I’ll lead a discussion or a walk or give a talk of some kind, suggest an activity, and one evening, certainly, I’ll give a reading. Otherwise I’ll be thinking and writing and reading and maybe drawing (there’s a nature drawing class while I’m there) or even blowing glass (there’s a beginning glassblowing workshop, too!). And staring at the ocean, also swimming, though the water is cold. There are seven sessions in all, six of two weeks, one of one week, and a tantalizing array of classes in all sorts of crafts are offered. And the thing that I love is that writing is one of those crafts. I’ve written about my experience at Haystack here. But just wanted to let you know what a great, peaceful, inspiring, experience it is. Plus, they’ve got application deadlines coming up March 1. Have a look: www.haystack-mtn.org.
