FAWC summer workshops

The Fine Arts Work Center will be posting this year's schedule of summer workshops (and the registration form) this coming Tuesday.

If you're looking for a summer workshop, I highly recommend this program. They have a terrific faculty, and they attract a startlingly high level of students -- the three workshops I've taken there have included people with MFA's, Cave Canem fellows, people with books forthcoming, and most importantly, darn good poets. And you can't beat Provincetown for a lovely place to spend a week. (Beaches! Clam chowder! Lobster! Whale-watching! Funky little shops! Glitzy drag shows! Rainbow flags everywhere! Miraculously enough, in spite of all the distractions, I always find myself writing like crazy when I'm there.)

It's not the cheapest program around, largely because housing in Provincetown is exorbitant. But if you can swing it -- which I can't this year -- it's fabulous.

I hope to find my way to the workshops at the Fine Arts Work Center some day--they sound amazing! Thanks again for your generous words, Anne--I'm so glad you enjoyed my book!
