Two great poets and great friends closed the year on a high note:
Susan Meyers was selected for the SC Parks 2010 Artist-in-Residence program. She will be at Oconee State Park, Mountain Rest, the third week in May. "After living in a cabin there for the week--exploring the park and spending time writing about its flora and fauna--I'll turn in a framed poem to be hung somewhere in one of the cabins or other facility on their grounds," she writes.
And Sarah Lindsay, who has been reaping acclaim for her latest collection, "Twigs and Knucklebones," has received a two-year Lannan Literary Fellowship.
I'm blessed to have both of them as readers, critiquers, encouragers, as I stutter out the occasional poem.
