...and enjoying the elegant surroundings of the Brown Hotel.
But just over a month ago, I was basking in the serene and inspiring atmosphere of the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota with my fellow spuds and writing up a storm.
What we as writers need is community--whether it be the intensity of a writing program or a quiet, more inspiring time to gather with a trusted group of writer friends, who give freely of their wisdom, expertise, and encouragement. As other spuds have mentioned, the Saturday afternoon workshop session was a favorite part of our 5-day retreat. I will always treasure the sharing of voices, the honest feedback, the brainstorming of ideas, and the camaraderie of our group.
This was our first gathering of all ten spuds, but I know it won't be our last.
P.S. And if it weren't for the Spalding MFA program, where I met Stephanie and Betsy, I would never have been a part of One Potato...Ten!
