The Blog Formerly Known As Class Maledictorian posts on writing workshops, causing me to comment there about the Kenyon Young Wrtiers' Workshop in which I participated nearly (egads) ten years ago. Yes, dear readers, these mad skillz were honed on a firefly accented hill in the middle of Ohio.
To my immediate delight and chagrin, I noticed the brilliant folks at the Kenyon Review have started a Writers Workshop in Italy. In Italy!?!? Damn, I. Am. So. Jealous.
Gambier, Ohio is possible the world's most perfect place for writing. I'm willing to bet, however, that Vitorchiano is a damn close second. The workshop was June 5-12, so clearly, I missed it. But if anyone wants to give Phoblog a $2,500 gift next year, I know what you can get me . . . .
