Today is the first full day of class at Iowa Writer’s Workshop, in Iowa City.
I agreed with a fellow classmate that I was also here for my summer “vacation”. Our version of vacation was not of the Caribbean variety.
For me it is a chance to visit lots of good bookstores. I am stunned by how many good books are out there. [Note to my fiancé: I’ve only bought TWO books, and that’s it. I will try to stop there! ]
Iowa City offers so much. And I will admit it: I am very allured by their abundances of good food venues!
So, to the real time: The real class. The classmates. The professor. I will learn about my classmates, all aspiring poets, like me, through the week.
We will be workshopping our poetry.
On to learning!
