Hosted by Jillian Sullivan, poet, author, educator, administrator, teacher, lecturer, and new best friend, I learned lessons in "alliteration" and "assonance;" received validation on being a writer, and contrary to necessity sitting in silence in order to scribble and write something, I met other writers who do same thing as me, proving once and for all, I am not alone.
I love to take photographs. Here are a few highlights from Highlights in Honesdale. *I hope you enjoy viewing them, as much as I have enjoyed snapping them.*
|This is a cabin in the woods of Honesdale, one of many. Each writer is assigned their very own cabin to live in while attending a Highlights Foundation writing workshop. Fully equipped, it has heat for chilly months, and airconditioner, for those "other" months. All the comforts of a new home, there is a small refrigerator stocked with assorted sodas and juices, coffee and coffee maker, and coffee mugs. There is shampoo, soap and plenty of tissues, and under the bathroom sink, there is even a hairdryer.|
|This is "Uncle Jack's Cabin, Cabin #15." |
When writers from around the world travel to Honesdale to take a Highlights workshop, they can expect a cabin just like this.
|Friends I made:|
L-R, Teacher, Jillian Sullivan, Barbara Garriel, Tom Ohl, Michon Kerlin, Madelyn Carson, and Margie Flintom.
|"The Barn" at Highlights in Honesdale.|
Where all those great classes are held.
|The kitchen is in this huge cabin. The place where all those happy memories were made.|
It's been a wonderful week. I am grateful.
Check out a Highlights Foundation writing workshop--you don't gotta be a children's writer to attend one. Yet.
