>I’m heading home today after my two-week residency at Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. It’s been a good, productive time, and I’ve met some very nice people–the other residents and also the staff, Denise and Pat. I recommend it if you’re considering applying for residencies.
Last night, the four current residents went out to dinner and then, joined by a former resident who is in town to do an art installation, presented our work to each other. The three visual artists all showed slides of work they’ve done before–some very impressive stuff–and I read some short pieces from a work in progress (but not the novel I’m working on here). That was great–that’s one of the things I enjoy most about residencies.
