SwampFire Retreat for Artists and Writers

In July 2008, I acted on a long-standing desire to host a retreat at a family farmhouse in Larwill, Indiana, and SwampFire Retreat for Artists  and Writers was born.  IMG_1237

Seven years later and SwampFire has become an annual and much anticipated event, now hosted by potter Steve Smith of 4 Corners Gallery Studio and Pottery and co-organized with poet and Defiance College English professor Mary Catherine Harper.

I am grateful for SwampFire–the people, the event, and the site which is so marvelously maintained by Mary Catherine–as a central component of my creative community and life.
