I'm pleased to announce that I've been accepted into author Summer Woods' master class at the Taos Summer Writers' Conference. During this weeklong workshop in July, Woods will help me and five other budding authors bring our work to its fuller realization. In the meantime, I will be reading her new book Wrecker as well as the manuscripts of the other participants. It's just the kind of project I've been looking for to develop my writing. I'm also looking forward to taking part in the morning yoga sessions and touring Taos, which has served as the inspiration to writers and artists from D.H. Lawrence and Gertrude Stein to Georgia O'Keefe.
