the iowa summer writing festival saved my life!

Professionally speaking, that is. It's a long story, but basically it was my first experience at that program (a poetry workshop with Timothy Liu and a fiction workshop with Sands Hall) that set my feet firmly back on the path of a life of the mind, and a writing life, in particular. (I ended up going back twice more in subsequent years.) I highly recommend these workshops to anyone interested!

Have a great time with your workshop, Robert!
