"Loyalty to oneself and ethical ideals are at the heart of this brilliant and surprising novel. Environment, red tape, crime, capitalism, and survival are topics ably fielded alongside of faithful stewardship, friendship, and what makes a family. If you're looking for a thoughtful, fast-paced, mad-cap, entertaining novel which will delight you, pick this up. You will not be disappointed, and you'll come away thinking—which is never a bad thing. Res upp! Life is GOOD!" —Tanita Davis, Finding Wonderland

the shed: photography weekend workshop (with marshmallows)


Photography Intensive: Storytelling with Natural Light and Composition

September 13-15, 2013 in Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada

Right now there's hammering and the belt sander so it's not quite ready but it will be, soon. Wood-planked interior; white paint; ropes to hoist up the windows to the rafters and let the creek in; metal fireguard for Bess; roof; lean-to for the wood pile; slate under the fire pit. A photography workshop is the first little creekside/oceanside event. Shortly after that, a childrens' creative writing day as conceived by Ben. After that, maybe an autumn writing get-together in front of the woodstove? We'll see.

All the details on workshop one, the photography intensive, are here. Register by August 15 with the caveat that it's an intimate (a.k.a. teeny-tiny) event, so sooner is best to reserve your spot. Meet me in the backyard.

Oh, Kate -- when I saw those pictures, my stomach just got filled up with excited butterflies, and I'm a kazillion miles away and have nothing to do with photography (sadly!) I just felt so thrilled at the sight of your project that I think I'll have to go out and make one of my own, and soon. The studio is great, it's beautiful, and I admire so much how you make things happen for yourself. Bravo! Bravo!
