Sewaneeing

For the next two weeks, I'll be hanging out on the mountain at the Sewanee Writers Conference, held at the University of the South in Sewanee, TN.


Check the VW Bug in this window in All Saints' Chapel.

This morning we heard a great reading by a few of the conference fellows--easily one of the best readings I've ever been to. One highlight was Cody Walker's poem, "Chickenless Pulled Chicken Blues," about the curiously named food item from Trader Joe's. In fact, all three readers (Fiction writer Aryn Kyle and playwright Dorothy Fortenberry were awesome as well) had the audience cracking up.

Current status, Day Two--Food: surprisingly good. Cicadas: loud enough you need to raise your voice. Dorm mattresses: crinkly. Weather: muggy. Campus: 13,000 acres of trails, caves, treetop canopy walks, LEED-certified castles, and sorcerer's lairs. Me: happy.

I want to go here:
