We held our first of two Bending Genres Retreats at Cedar Valley in West Bend, Wisconsin on July 18- 24. Meg Tuite and I were joined by Dr. Bob, Kellie, Joe, Michael, John, Bill, Jennifer, Martha and Al. We had so many moments of inspiration, including flash floods, and thunderstorms, incredible writing, a new coffee machine, and much more. Thanks to everyone at CV and all of our writers for making the week so memorable.
