ELIZABETH PEAVEY CONTEMPLATES NEXT STEPS


It was announced in May that I have been awarded a slot at the pilot Monson Artist Residency, where I hope, at long last, to finish the memoir version of my one-woman show, My Mother's Clothes Are Not My Mother.

Stuart Kestenbaum—former director of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Maine’s poet laureate—is currently advising the Libra Foundation’s work in Monson, where they have invested in the development of a significant arts program in the town by purchasing and renovating more than twenty buildings to be used for residences and studios.



Thanks to Kestenbaum the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance was able to invite the past five years-worth of Maine Literary Award winners and finalists (I won the 2013 award for Best Drama) to apply for the one-month residency that provides lodging and meals -- very important to a writer who thinks going into the kitchen is punishment for being bad. 
Fiction writer Brandon Dudley was the other recipient of the MWPA appointment.

I am so grateful for this gift of time and space, and I am looking forward (aside from the black flies) to spending a month in my beloved North Woods.


That's it for this time. Thanks for stopping by. Bye for now.
