|How we began eight years ago...|
After a long school-year's sleep, Outside the Atlas returns with greater strength & keener vision. This summer, we will not only be sharing work from our 2013 interns, updates about the program, event announcements (we will be hosting at least 2 readings this year), but we will also be inviting other young writers from the area to share, submit, perform & participate more in the ever-developing creative writing community here in the QC. More details coming next week, but since it's Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to share something I wrote for the founder of the YEW Program, master teacher & dear friend Tim Curry, to start this year's work off remembering where this program started so we can better understand & celebrate where we go next. This is my tribute to Mr. Curry, available at Ink Node.
Thanks for keeping up with us, thanks for sharing with us--it's going to be the best summer yet. Stay tuned...
