Creatively, I just typed “the end” on the first draft of my second novel. It’s been more than a year and a half coming, writing is an awful lot like mining, groping around in the dark looking for something that will eventually shine, but I found a gem here in Good Hart and I’m astounded by the amount and quality of work I’ve done here. This residency has given me the time and the space to reconnect with my practice and my muse. To find the joy in the work and to fall in love with writing again.

“This is a place founded on the ideas of generosity, friendship, and a love and respect for the creative arts. This place reaffirmed my faith in humanity which I needed in these crazy political times!”
