Hey, I almost forgot! Apply to Viable Paradise!

Applications are now being accepted for Viable Paradise 18.  VP18 will be held from Sunday, 10/12/14, to Friday, 10/17/14.

VP17 was one of the best things I’ve ever done.  I will treasure it forever, even if I never manage to publish.  If When I do publish, a not inconsiderable portion of the credit will be due to the work of my VP instructors and classmates.

If you want to write, apply.  You’ve little to lose and much to gain.

And take my advice: If you get accepted, arrange to arrive on Saturday if you can (I could not), and leave on Saturday.  You won’t want to be rushing to a flight on Friday night, and you’ll relish the time with your classmates.

And just accept that you’re going to cry when you leave.
