The leaves have turned in this area. My ride in from Allentown Monday afternoon was spectacular. First thing I did was take a short walk to settle into the serenity and beauty of the place. This year’s workshop poets assembled for dinner that evening. The food (thank you, Chef Joseph!) was wonderful, as always.
I am extremely impressed by the multitalented people who enrolled in this year’s workshop. Tuesday was full. We met for breakfast at 7:30, went straight into the first session, and didn’t stop all day. During the main sessions we discussed free verse, verse, humor, and marketing. After dinner John Farrell entertained us with his delightful songs and sense of humor. I got back to my room at 9:30.
Today will be another busy one with Skype appearances from Jane Yolen and Kenn Nesbitt and a session led in person by Highlights poetry editor, Rebecca Davis. This evening Liz VanDoren will join us for dinner and share a few thoughts with the group. Did I mention the food? Wow!
Away we go!
