Last week I participated in my first writing marathon! It was amazing! I am participating in the Meadow Brook Summer Writing Institute, part of the National Writing Project. Thursday we spent the day as writers; writing, sharing and responding to each others’ pieces. I was captivated by the work of my peers. The organizers set the stage for an engaging day of writing. I was so inspired by the beauty around me. Spending they with words swimming in my mind and spilling out on paper was simply marvelous!
