I am signed up to attend Journalfest in Port Townsend, Washington in October. I am pulling together supplies, looking for the pens, inks, collage materials that I want to take along.....I'll be taking "With One Stone" by Lisa Cheney-Jorgensen on Thursday, "Love and Fear" with Traci Bunkers on Friday, and "Unraveling Word" with Stephanie Lee on Saturday. I am SO excited....
I actually attended my very first writers'/artists' retreat at Fort Worden when I was in the sixth grade, through a Centrum Arts Funded program through the public school where I grew up. We created a book at that time called "Siftings", an anthology of writing and art during a week-long art intensive camp for sixth-graders. My contribution was a wood block print, titled "White Hollow".
We grow up, we create lives and careers, and looky- full circle, back to where we began! This is going to be a great experience, and I am really looking forward to it.
