Returning as Ox-Bow’s Writer-in-Residence

News on the creative writing front: I’ve been selected as a writer-in-residence for Ox-Bow!

If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is my sophomore selection as an Ox-Bow writer-in-residence. Two years ago, just back from a trip to California, I was selected for a residency during Ox-Bow’s 100th year. This year, I got to go to California again—and now, Ox-Bow!

Affiliated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ox-Bow is located along the shores of Lake Michigan and offers 115 acres of inspirational space: pristine natural forests, dunes, a lagoon, and historic buildings.

Writers at this artists’ colony are provided with a small apartment, private lodge with inspirational views, three gourmet meals a day, and snacks around the clock—all from local farms.

Also provided is the opportunity to meet other artists from around the world, and (most importantly) uninterrupted time to write. Ox-Bow’s residency program is about immersion, commitment, freedom, and focus.

Founded in 1910, Ox-Bow is celebrating 102 years as a haven for artists, writers, and thinkers.

With Tracks published and Womb with my agent, I plan to begin a new novel during my residency. That is, when I’m not busy with my other writer-in-residence duties, such as eating, hiking, canoeing, and carousing.
