Folks, please be sure to review the workshop descriptions for any prep work required for each workshop. It is important (required) that you prep for all of your workshops, of course, and especially important that you prep well for the Master Classes offered by Betts and Walsh. As a gentle reminder to those of you who are returning and a new point of information to those of you who are new to the program–workshop leaders will ask any students who show up to workshops clearly unprepared to leave the workshop. I’m sure that will happen with none of you, though.
Please also read the two Housatonic Book Award winning books in advance of the residency–Reginald Dwayne Betts’s Bastards of the Reagan Era and M. O. Walsh’s My Sunshine Away. There will, as usual, be signings at the ends of their readings.
