There is the obvious excitement: summer in a charming bungalow in a new city with my dog, ample time to write, and sweet tea at every cafe in town. But the real thrill for me is being on new terrain: exploring a region through making art there. I feel honored to be the 2016 summer Writer-in-Residence at Hub City, a group with both essential community programming and a commitment to producing literature. If you’re in the area, stop on by and let’s talk.
