It was another fabulous year at Wildbranch, the writing workshop cosponsored by Orion and Sterling College. Faculty members David Abram, Janisse Ray, Scott Russell Sanders, and Sandra Steingraber drew an appealing group of applicants, half of whom were accepted to attend the workshop in June. The weather in Craftsbury Common, Vermont, was brisk this year, but it didn’t put much of a damper on the morning bird walks. It was a busy week, as usual, with morning class, afternoon discussions, wine and beer social hours, locally sourced meals, and, of course, homework. Some excellent writing was shared by faculty at a Wednesday evening reading, and by students on Friday afternoon. It is a delight for the editors of Orion to play a role in making this workshop happen. We look forward to it every year.
Details for the 2009 workshop will be announced in autumn.
