Gone to Press!

jackiesbookI’ve been part of a short story class with bestselling author Jon Katz for the last few years. It is an offshoot of a writing workshop that started at Hubbard Hall, a community theater and arts center in Cambridge, NY. Now held at Pompanuck Farm, not far from Hubbard Hall, our group has changed little and exists to support writing and creativity in general.

One of the great things about being part of a community of writers and artists is not just the support you receive but the inspiring people you meet.  One those is Jacki Thorne.

Writer, photographer, poet and painter, Jacki has been sharing her journey of creative exploration with us in class and on her blog Creative Journeywoman. She is a natural writer, drawing in the reader and holding them hostage until the very last word, but she’s also a natural adventure as she forges her own distinctive path.

She has just released her first book of essays and poetry called Gone to Ground, and I am anxiously awaiting my copy.

You can buy yours here.  Jacki will also be reading from her collection at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 25, at Battenkill Books in Cambridge, N.Y.
