Happy Monday!  If you’re a writer and you haven’t signed up yet for the weekly FundsforWriters email newsletter, you are missing out!  Especially since the most recent newsletter includes my essay about artists’ residencies!

I’ve had the great fortune to complete three residencies in the past few years – Arteles in Finland, Elsewhere Studios in Colorado, and Hypatia-in-the-Woods in Washington.

Spending time living and working at all three of these wonderful artistic enclaves changed me for the better.  And this Autumn I’ve been incredibly fortunate to live and write in Texarkana, Texas, thanks to the generosity of friends who have provided me with a writer’s retreat.

I hope you will visit C. Hope Clark’s brilliant website FundsforWriters.com and read my post, but also take a look around – she provides sound advice and resources for the writing life, whether you just started writing chapter one, or you’re trying to market your published work.  FFW is a trusted clearinghouse for literary markets, grants and contests.  Hope also has a blog about her own writing adventures.  I’m so thrilled to share my experiences on FundsforWriters!
