Greetings from Cannon Beach, Oregon . . .

. . . where a sampling of Vermont College of Fine Arts faculty (past and present) have gathered for a retreat. As you can deduce from the photo below, the weather is cool and blustery. But the company is warm and sparkling with wit and wisdom. Writing is by definition a lonely pursuit. Treasure your fellow scribblers. They’ll help you weather the storm.
